An investigation has been launched following the death of a 20-year-old woman in Hereford.


Shortly after 5am on Sunday morning (17 July) police were called to Green Street following a report of a concern for safety.

Officers attended along with colleagues from West Midlands Ambulance Service.

On arrival it was found that a 20-year-old woman had sustained unexplained injuries and sadly, she was pronounced dead at the scene.

Her next of kin has been informed.

A 21-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder. He has since been released on police bail pending further inquiries.

Detective Inspector Mark Walters, said:

“This is an incredibly sad incident and our thoughts go out to the family of the young woman who has lost her life.

“I understand that incidents of this nature can be alarming, but would like to reassure the local community that this is an isolated incident and there is no wider risk to the public.

“You may see an increased police presence in the area over the coming days as our investigation continues.”

The woman's family has asked for privacy at this time.
