Teenagers die after falling from a sixth floor balcony

Two teenagers have died after falling from a balcony at at block of flats in south east London. Police say an 18-year-old man and 19-year-old woman, died at the scene in Wharf Street in Deptford after falling from the sixth floor of Knights Tower.

This appears to be a tragic accident and our thoughts go out to the families and those that knew them. They were at a party in the block when this tragedy occurred. I would urge any witnesses to make contact with detectives.
