Two teenagers have died after falling from a sixth floor balcony at a party in London.

The 18-year-old man and 19-year-old woman were both pronounced dead at the scene, following what police believe was a “tragic accident”.

Officers were called to Knights Tower in Wharf Street, Deptford by the London Ambulance Service shortly after midnight.

A police spokesman said officers are not treating the deaths as suspicious, but will continue to investigate.

Inspector Shaun Carre-Brown said: “This appears to be a tragic accident and our thoughts go out to the families and those that knew them.

“The couple were at a party in the block when this tragedy occurred.

“I would urge any witnesses to make contact with detectives.”
