Five people have been arrested on suspicion of murder after a woman was found dead at a house in Nuneaton.

“We would ask anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity in the area over Friday night (12 August) and until about 1:15am on Saturday (13 August) to please come forward.

“Equally, if anyone has any concerns or information that can help, we would advise them to approach and speak with one of our officers. There will be an increased policing presence in the area, and I would like to reassure the community that we are conducting a thorough investigation.”

Police have asked that anyone who witnessed any “suspicious activity” in the area on the night of Friday 12 August through to Saturday morning to get in touch with them.
