An investigation is underway after a woman was pronounced dead by medics at a residential address on Magnolia Close, E10.
Police were called to the address at 11.52am today, Tuesday, February 26 after concerns were raised about its occupants.
At the scene, a 35-year-old woman was found with what are currently believed to be stab wounds.
The London Ambulance Service and medics from London’s Air Ambulance attended but she was pronounced dead at the scene.
A man, aged 54, who was also inside the property, was arrested and is in police custody.
Detective Inspector Olly Clark, said: “At this very early stage we are treating this as a domestic-related incident and believe the parties were known to each other.
“A man was arrested at the scene and officers will be working hard to establish the exact sequence of events which led to this woman losing her life.
“A post-mortem examination in due course will help us establish this and we will keep the victim’s family and local community informed as the investigation progresses.”
