A MURDER INVESTIGATION is under way in London after a 61-year-old woman died from head injuries following an incident in Islington.

Police were called to the scene just after 7am yesterday morning, and the woman was admitted to a north London hospital where she later died from her injuries.

It is understood that she sustained the injuries at a residential address where she’d been working as a carer.

A 95-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder.

He has been taken to hospital as a precaution due to a pre-existing medical condition. He’s set to remain there pending his transfer to a location where his “complex health and care needs can be managed”, police said.

The man has been bailed while police enquiries continue.
