Woman, 61, dies in hospital in north of capital after being admitted with head injuries




A 95-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering his carer after a woman died in hospital, police have said.


The Metropolitan police said they believed the 61-year-old woman’s injuries were sustained at a residential address in Islington, north London, where she was working as a carer.


The London ambulance service was called to the property at 4.15am on Thursday and sent two crews, a spokesman said. “We treated one person at the scene and took them to hospital as a priority,” he added.


Police officers were called to a hospital in north London shortly after 7am on Thursday, after the woman was admitted with head injuries. She died shortly before 11am on Friday.


The man was bailed and police said they were not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident. He was taken to hospital as a precaution owing to a pre-existing condition. Police said he would stay there until a place was found where “his complex health and care needs” could be managed.


Neither the arrested man nor the victim have been named by Scotland Yard.


The woman’s next of kin have been informed and police said a postmortem examination would be carried out.
