A WOMAN has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a body of a second woman was pulled from a canal.
The remains of the woman, 57, were found in the water off Bulls Bridge Lane.
The finding came after police were called to a property in Northumberland Crescent, Feltham, around 10.30pm on Sunday after receiving reports of a concern for welfare.
While no one was found at the address, officers discovered signs of a disturbance.
After carrying out further enquiries, a 33-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of murder.
A crime scene has since been put in place in Northumberland Crescent and searches are continuing at the canal.
The Met Police believe it is an isolated incident.
Detective Inspector Ollie Stride said: “A woman has been arrested on suspicion of murder and we believe this was an isolated incident.
“We await formal identification of the deceased, however, specially trained officers are supporting the family.
“Our thoughts are with them at this difficult time.
“Searches are continuing in the area of Bulls Bridge Road and the canal and I appreciate the public’s patience while police cordons remain in place.”
Chief Superintendent Sean Wilson said: “This is a horrific incident and our thoughts are with the family of the deceased.
