A MAN has been arrested in connection with the death of a woman in Tamworth this morning.

At 01.25 GMT this morning (Friday 20 November), police were called to reports that a 25-year-old woman had been seriously injured on Bingley Avenue.

Despite the best efforts of emergency services staff, the woman sadly died at the scene.

The 27-year-old man, from Tamworth, has been arrested on suspicion of murder and remains in custody.

The woman’s family are being supported by specially-trained officers.

Video footage, seen by Tamworth Informed shows a number of Police Forensic Investigation vans at the scene, along with a number of Collision Investigation Unit vehicles.

A spokesperson for West Midlands Ambulance Service has said:

“We were called by police at 1:37am to an assault in Bingley Avenue, Tamworth.

“We sent three ambulances, two paramedic officers and the MERIT emergency doctor and critical care paramedic to the scene.

“On arrival, crews found a woman with life-threatening injuries and worked quickly to administer advanced trauma care to the patient.

“Sadly, despite best efforts, nothing could be done to save the woman and she was confirmed dead at the scene.

“A second patient, a man, was treated at the scene before being taken to hospital for further assessment.”

At Tamworth Informed our thoughts are with the family and friends of the victim.
