A 32-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering a woman at a home in east London.

Police were called to an address in the Isle of Dogs at about 6.20pm on Saturday after concerns over the safety of a resident.

Scotland Yard said the deceased, who is believed to be in her 30s, and the arrested man were known to each other.

The woman was found dead at the scene in East Ferry Road and a postmortem examinawill take place in due course. Her next of kin have not yet been informed since the woman is yet to be formally identified.

Police appealed for anyone who had concerns regarding the welfare of those living at the address leading up to the death to come forward.

DCI Paul Considine said: “We are at an early stage in our investigation but require the assistance of the public to help us piece together what exactly happened.

“If you heard or saw anything at the address that seemed out of place or of concern on Saturday 5 January or the days leading up to it, please don’t hesitate to contact us.”

The Met’s homicide and major crime command are investigating.
