Scotland Yard said police were called by the London Ambulance Service at 8.24pm on Wednesday night.

A spokeperson said: “There have been no arrests.

“At this very early stage, the matter is being treated as a domestic incident with no other persons believed involved. Extensive inquiries into the circumstances continue.”
