Police received a report of concern for the welfare of a man in the Dukes Gardens area of Blyth around 3.45am today. When emergency personnel arrived on the scene, they discovered a man in his 40s with an injury consistent with being caused by a bladed article. He was treated for his injuries at the scene, but despite the best efforts of paramedics, he died a short time later.

An investigation into the incident was immediately launched, and a 34-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder. He is still being held at this time.
