An 11-year-old girl who was stabbed in Wolverhampton has died in hospital.

Police were called to Kent Road just before 1am this morning after a neighbour heard a disturbance.

Officers found 11-year-old Jasmine Forrester inside the address with multiple injuries, including a serious head wound.

She was left in a critical condition, but lost her fight for life in hospital this afternoon.

The 51-year-old suspect, who is related to the youngster, has been taken to hospital for treatment to a minor injury.

At this stage, he remains under arrest on suspicion of murder.

A post mortem is expected to be held on Sunday.

Police are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident.

A woman in her 80s, who is also a relative of the youngster, suffered a suspected dislocated shoulder during the incident and has been treated in hospital.
