Teen’s death plunge as cops raid flat

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

AN 18-year-old woman plunged to her death from a 17th floor win­dow mo­ments af­ter po­lice en­tered to make an ar­rest.

Po­lice said they ar­rived at the block of flats in Wool­wich, south-east London, at around 9.30am on Tues­day morn­ing.

But within mo­ments of storm­ing in, the woman fell to her death from a be­d­room win­dow.

It is not yet known if she leapt in an at­tempt to get away from the po­lice. She was pro­nounced dead at the scene.

Po­lice said they were vis­it­ing the tower block as part of a re­call to prison in­quiry and were still wait­ing for the dead teen to be iden­ti­fied.

A man was ar­rested by of­fi­cers on sus­pi­cion of as­sist­ing an of­fender and is cur­rently in cus­tody.
