A man has been charged with murder after a woman was reportedly stabbed to death in the street outside her home.

Jack Norman, 27, has been charged with the murder of a 25-year-old woman, outside a house in Tamworth, Staffordshire on Friday November 20.

Police were called to the scene shortly after 1.30am to reports of a woman seriously injured outside an address.

She had allegedly been stabbed and then run over with a car, but the cause of her death has not yet been confirmed by police.

An eyewitness, who declined to be identified, said she heard a man shouting in the early hours of the morning.

Another reportedly told The Sun: "It happened around 50 metres from my door. I can still see forensics officers coming and going, and there is an awful lot of police activity.

"No-one should have their life ended like that.

"It's just such a shock. This is a nice new estate in a good, quiet area. I've been here about four months and there haven't been any problems at all.

"Hopefully this is just an isolated incident."

In a statement, Staffordshire Police said: "A 27-year-old man has been charged with murder after the death of a woman in Tamworth.

"Officers were called to Bingley Avenue shortly before 1:30am on Friday 20 November following reports a woman had been seriously injured.
