Woman's body discovered in suitcase

A woman's body has been found in a suitcase hidden among trees near a sports ground, Scotland Yard said.

Murder squad detectives are investigating after the discovery in Thornfield Avenue, Hendon, north London, at around 5pm on Sunday.

The surrounding area has been cordoned off.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said a post-mortem examination will be arranged in due course.

The woman, who has been described as a young adult, has not yet been identified.

The body was discovered among trees near the sports ground, which is owned by Christ's College and is bordered by a footpath and a brook.

Scotland Yard said that the woman is white and that the post-mortem examination was due to start later.
