Police have launched a probe after a woman was founded dead in a leafy London suburb. 

Emergency services rushed to a neighbourhood in Chislehurst this morning following reports a woman’s body was found on the street. 

They found the 46-year-old unresponsive, and despite their best efforts pronounced her dead on the scene. 

Police have since informed her next of kin, and have launched an investigation.

In a statement, the Metropolitan Police said her death was “unexpected”.

“Officers attended along with the London Ambulance Service.

“The body of 46-year-old woman was found at the scene. Her next of kin have been informed.

“The death is being treated as unexpected and further enquiries are taking place to establish the circumstances.”

The Met said officers are conducting enquiries, and appealed for help from the general public.
