woman has been arrested after a man died in a Somerset village last night.
Avon and Somerset Police were called by the ambulance service to an address in Berrow after a man had been seriously injured.
The man was pronounced dead at the scene.
The force said formal identification has yet to take place, but the man’s next of kin have been informed.
A post-mortem examination will be carried out in due course.
DI Roger Doxsey, of the Major Crime Investigation Team, said a woman has been arrested and is currently in police custody.
He added: “Our thoughts and sympathies go out to the man’s family at this time. A family liaison officer will provide specialist support to them at this difficult time.
“Our enquiries are at a very early stage, but we believe this to be an isolated incident at this time.
“A police cordon remains in place and will do for some time while enquiries are carried out. Additional patrols will be taking place as a precaution and we’d urge anyone with concerns about this incident to talk to those officers.
“We’d ask any witnesses with information that may help our enquiries to call 101 and give the call-handler reference 5221032125.”
