Two men have been arrested over the unexplained death of a woman at a house in Newcastle.

Carieanne Downs, 31, was pronounced dead on Monday after emergency services were called to the property in the city's Vallum Court.

The men, aged 31 and 36, were arrested for drugs-related offences and then released on police bail.

Northumbria Police said a post-mortem examination would be carried out later to establish a cause of death.
