Woman found dead in historic London gay pub

Police have begun an investigation after a 36-year-old woman was found dead in one of London’s historic gay pubs.

Emergency services were called to the King William IV pub at 10am yesterday (14 January) to a report of an unconscious woman.

A Met spokesperson said: ‘Police were called at around 10:05am to a report on an unconscious female at an address in Hampstead High Street.

‘Police and London Ambulance Service (LAS) attended. The 36-year-old female was pronounced dead at the scene.

‘The coroner has been informed and a post-mortem examination will be scheduled in due course.’

The death is not being treated as suspicious.

An LAS spokeswoman told the Standard: ‘We were called at 10.06 am to reports of an incident at an address in Hampstead High Street.

‘We sent a number of resources to the scene, including a duty officer.

‘Sadly despite extensive efforts to resuscitate the patient one woman was pronounced dead at the scene.’

The pub – which advertises itself as London’s first gay pub, was closed for the day.
