Police in Northampton have launched a murder investigation following the death of a woman at an address in Agnes Road in the town on Monday night.
Officers were called by paramedics at about 7.30pm on Monday, 21 March after reports of a woman having been seriously injured. The woman later died.
A 41-year-old man from Northampton, who was known to the woman, was arrested on suspicion of murder and is currently being held at the Criminal Justice Centre.
A forensic post mortem examination is set to take place at Leicester Royal Infirmary.
An investigation's begun after a child found what police have confirmed to be a 'live' bullet while out playing in the Abington area of Northampton.
The bullet was handed to police on Thursday 17th March by the child's grandparent.
It was found on Bushland Road near to the Co-op. The child had been playing with a number of children in the area and had taken the bullet home.
Police have since spoken to all the other children who had been playing in the area.
They're still appealing for anyone with information to come forward.
"We have checked the bullet that was handed in to us and it is live, which means it is likely that any other bullets taken home by other children will also be live. I want any parent or guardian who has a child who was in Bushland Road on Thursday 17th March to speak to them and ask if they saw any bullets, or if they took any home. Live ammunition can be incredibly dangerous and anyone who finds a bullet should call 101 to report it to us, so we can make arrangements to collect it."
The funeral will take place today of murdered Northampton barmaid India Chipchase.
The 20-year-old was found dead after a night out in January.
Edward Tenniswood, 51, from Northampton has been charged with killing her and is due in court in May.

Police officers searching of woodland in connection with the disappearance of teenager Sarah Benford have found a hand gun.
Searches of woodland near Warkton in Northamptonshire have been taking place today as part of a fresh appeal to find the 14-year-old who went missing in April 2000.
A review of the case which has seen 20 witnesses interviewed in recent months, led officers to search the woodland in the hope of finding some link to Sarah.
As part of that work officers uncovered the hand gun, which appears to have been in place for some time.
“At this stage there is no evidence to suggest the hand gun has any connection to Sarah and her disappearance, but it does reinforce how important it is to search this piece of land.
“We want to hear from anyone who may have any information about Sarah’s disappearance, or who may have information about how this piece of woodland was used by people wanting to hide items, including stolen goods.
