A man in his 60s has been arrested on suspicion of murder following the death of a woman in Yarmouth last month.

Police arrested the man yesterday evening (Monday) on suspicion of the murder of a local woman.

Officers were called to Yarmouth High Street on September 22, following concerns for the welfare of a woman who fell seriously ill at an address.

The woman was taken to hospital where she later died.

Hampshire Constabulary said: "Following a number of enquiries, police are still trying to establish the exact circumstances of the death, but are currently treating the death as suspicious and have arrested a man, who was known to the woman, as part of our investigation."

He remains in custody.
