A man has been arrested after a fellow prisoner was discovered dead in his cell at Wandsworth prison yesterday morning.
The accused, in his 40s, is in police custody following the discovery of the deceased at 7.35am who is believed to be in his 60s.
Next of kin have been informed but formal identification is yet to take place – a post-mortem will follow in due course.
The murder investigation is being led by Detective Chief Inspector Rebecca Reeves of the Homicide and Major Crime Command.
