A woman has died after she fell from the ninth floor of a five-star hotel in London.

Emergency services rushed to The Standard in King's Cross shortly before 5:30am on Tuesday morning.

The woman, a guest at the hotel, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said the tragedy was being treated as "non-suspicious" as forensic officers inspected the area throughout the morning, including the ninth-floor balcony from which the woman fell.

Euston Road was closed to the public while police attended the scene and a cordon remains in place at the scene.

A spokesperson for The Standard said: "We can confirm a tragic incident took place this morning.
