Detective Inspector Olly Clark, said in the wake of the Tuesday tragedy: 'At this very early stage we are treating this as a domestic-related incident and believe the parties were known to each other. We are not seeking further suspects.

'A man was arrested at the scene and officers will be working hard to establish the exact sequence of events which led to this woman losing her life.'

Meanwhile police have made no arrests for the 'brutal and frenzied' murder of Tyler Royce, 24, who was fatally stabbed in the early hours of Wednesday.
