Romford woman found dead at home after ‘cowardly assault’

An 85-year-old woman has been found dead in her home after a “cowardly assault”, police have said.

A handyman working at the address in Ashmour Gardens in Romford, east London, found the woman at about 11:30 BST on Tuesday.

The victim is yet to be formally identified but her next-of-kin have been informed.

Murder detectives have not made any arrests. A post-mortem is expected to be held on Thursday.

Det Insp Paul Considine, who is leading the Met Police investigation, said police believe the woman was attacked between 07:30 and 11:30 on Tuesday.

“It is imperative that we find those responsible for this horrendous offence.”
