An investigation is underway after police were called to a flat in Hutchison Road around 10.25am this morning following concern for a woman.

The Scottish Ambulance Service also attended and the 21-year-old was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

Her death is being treated as suspicious and a man is presently detained by detectives in connection with this.

Detective Chief Inspector Alwyn Bell of Edinburgh’s CID said: “Our thoughts are with the young woman’s family at this incredibly difficult time and officers continue to offer them support.

“The investigation into the full circumstances surrounding her death continues, however we’re not currently looking for anyone else in connection with this.

“Anyone with information who has not yet spoken to officers is urged to contact us via 101 or report this anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
