Woman found dead on street after ‘falling from height’ near London hotel

 

A woman has been found dead in a street after “falling from height” near a London hotel, police have confirmed.

Officers were called to the five-star hotel The Standard, opposite the British Library, at 5.26am today.

The hotel’s manager, Elli Jafari, confirmed the woman had been on a guest floor.

Forensics officers were seen searching the balcony of a ninth-floor penthouse suite.

Witness Moses Bouchamie, 30, told the Evening Standard: “There was a massive thud, then I saw a woman on the ground.

“Staff from the Tube stop opposite raced over to her.

“Then the paramedics showed up and were working on her. It was terrible.”

Metropolitan Police set up a cordon in the area and said the death was being treated as “non-suspicious”.

A spokesman for the Met Police said: “Police were called to Euston Road, WC1H, at 5.26am on Tuesday, 8 December following reports that a woman had suffered injuries consistent with a fall from height.

“Officers attended alongside London Ambulance Service. A woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

“A road closure was put in place on Euston Road while inquiries continue.”

The Standard hotel is rated five stars and has 266 rooms starting at £200-a-night with terraced suites overlooking St Pancras station.

A spokesperson for the hotel said: “We can confirm a tragic incident took place this morning.

“Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the individual involved and we are providing any information the police require as part of their ongoing investigation.”

Euston Road, not far from Euston train station, was closed westbound between Pancras Road and Upper Woburn Place.

Officers reopened Euston Road around 10am.

An investigation is continuing into the incident.
