Woman's body found in lavatory
An investigation has been launched after the body of a woman was found in a toilet cubicle at Solihull Hospital.

The body was discovered on the evening of 11 November in a room which had been locked from the inside.

A spokesperson for Birmingham Heartlands & Solihull NHS Trust said the woman was a former patient who had discharged herself during treatment.

They said the trust would be working with detectives and the woman's family to find out what happened.

They added that at the time the patient discharged herself, staff contacted police as they were concerned and wanted her to return to continue treatment.
