It was reported police officers were called to Thurston Road in Lewisham at 2.12 this afternoon after they had received reports a 16 year old girl fell from a balcony. Shockingly, the Met Police said the girl was pronounced dead at the scene at 3.26pm. It is uncertain how far she fell from the balcony.
Police said in a statement ‘the death is being treated as non-suspicious and a file will be prepared for the Coroner.
Pictures from the scene today showed a large crane which was surrounded by emergency service vehicles, bent over the roof of a gym which is next to a large block of flats that have balconies on the road.
