A murder investigation has been launched after the death of a woman, believed to be 19 years old, at her student flat in London

Police were called to an accommodation block in Clerkenwell for students at City, University of London at 5.10am on Saturday after emergency services received reports of an injured woman. Officers and the London ambulance service attended and found the woman suffering from serious injuries. They attempted to revive her, but she was pronounced dead at the scene at Arbour House, Sebastian Street. No arrests have been made so far and detectives from the Met’s specialist crime command are leading the investigation. The Metropolitan police said on Saturday morning that inquiries were underway to identify and inform her next of kin. The front of Arbour House, a multi-storey block, was taped off and a section of nearby Goswell Road was closed to traffic. Ana, 20, an international student and resident at Arbour House, was in the building when the police arrived. “It has made me feel really uncomfortable and reminded me that we have to take extra precautions, especially as she was a woman around my age. “Seeing the police was scary at the beginning. We heard all the banging, the police raiding rooms to investigate on the fifth floor. I don’t actually know where they found her, but they were coming into our rooms. “But now it feels a lot safer to have them around while they investigate.” A spokesperson for Unite Students, which runs Arbour House, said: “As this remains an ongoing police incident, we are unable to comment on their investigation. “Our priority at this time is the safety and wellbeing of students at Arbour House. We are working closely with the police and City, University of London.” A spokesperson for City, University of London said: “As a university, we will do everything we can to support our students and staff and we will continue to fully support the police with their investigation. We are working closely with Unite Students who own and operate Arbour House.” A postmortem examination is expected to take place in due course. Anyone with information that could assist police is asked to call the incident room on 020 8358 1010. Alternatively, call 101 or tweet @MetCC and quote CAD1252/19March. Information can also be provided anonymously through the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
