Woman’s body found after neighbours hear ‘screaming in the night’ as police launch probe | UK | News

A woman’s body was found in a London alleyway after locals heard “screaming in the middle of the night.” Police have launched an investigation into her death.

The woman was found “unresponsive” in Grange Road, Tottenham, at 1.08pm on Sunday April 2, and was later pronounced dead at the scene.

She was found in a “long alleyway”, behind houses and warehouses. Her identity is not yet known.

Neighbours had reported “screaming” very late at night, and described the sound as though a man and a woman were “arguing very loudly”.

One local told the Evening Standard: “We heard screaming in the early morning, it sounded like a man and woman arguing very loudly. I thought it was a husband and wife arguing so I tried to ignore them.”

Another added to the outlet they saw the woman’s body being “pulled out on a stretcher” at “about 10pm on Sunday.”

A Metropolitan Police spokesperson told Express.co.uk: “Police were called at 1.08pm to Grange Road, N17 following reports of an unresponsive woman at the location.

“Officers and medics from the London Ambulance Service attended and the woman was pronounced dead at the scene.
