The incident happened at an address in Islington sevenMaps7/shutterstock

Met Police arrest 95-year-old man for murder after carer (61) dies from head injuries

Police are not seeking anyone else in connection with their investigation.

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.

They are not seeking anyone else in connection with the investigation.
