Her death is being treated as unexplained by police.

In a statement, Scotland Yard said: “Police were called by London Ambulance Service at 12.52 on Wednesday, March 13 to a residential address… following reports of a female in cardiac arrest.

“A female believed to be aged 18 was pronounced dead at the scene.

“A post-mortem examination will take place in due course.”

A person who was with her called 999, according to the Sun newspaper.

It is understood that Tomlinson, who is reportedly in London for a now-cancelled appearance on Friday night’s Comic Relief, was told of her death on Wednesday.

Tomlinson’s mother Johannah died from leukaemia in 2016.
