A carer in her 60s is fighting for her life after suffering serious head injuries at a property in Holloway’s Ringcross Estate.
The incident happened in the early hours in Papworth Gardens, off George’s Road.
The woman is believed to have been injured during the course of her duties.
There has been no suggestion she was assaulted, though police officers were at the property this afternoon.
She works for London Care’s Holloway branch in Seven Sisters Road.
A staff member told the Gazette this morning: “We are in the process of our own investigation so I cannot discuss anything further at the moment.”
A London Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “We were called at 4.15am today to Papworth Gardens, to reports of an incident. We sent two ambulance crews. We treated one person at the scene and took them to hospital as a priority.”
