Emergency services attended and a woman in her 40s was sadly found to be deceased inside the address. Her next of kin have been informed and specially-trained family liaison officers will continue to offer them any support they need.

Now, as enquiries into the woman’s death continue, police are appealing to the public for information as they look to ascertain the circumstances surrounding the incident. Detective Superintendent Jane Fairlamb, of Northumbria Police, said: “This is clearly an absolutely awful time for the woman’s family and all our thoughts remain with them as they attempt to come to terms with the events of the last 24 hours.

“I would ask that their privacy is respected as we continue to carry out a full investigation into the woman's death. An increased police presence remains in the area as officers continue to carry out a range of enquiries, and anyone with any concerns is encouraged to speak to them.
