Found dead on pavement: Lilia Djairine

This is the first picture of a young woman who was found dead outside her family’s pizzeria in west London.

Police were called to Uxbridge Road, Hanwell, just after noon yesterday to reports of a woman seriously injured outside the L’Oro di Napoli Italian restaurant.

Witnesses described seeing passers-by including an off-duty nurse give CPR to the woman, named locally as Lilia Djairine, 24. She was pronounced dead at 12.50pm.

A neighbour said Ms Djairine worked in the restaurant, which is owned by her mother.

Police were today questioning a 28-year-old man on suspicion of murder. The woman’s death is currently being treated as “unexplained”.

It is understood she suffered injuries consistent with a fall from height. A post-mortem examination was due to take place today.

Customer Sam Hunt, 25, said: “She was really nice always had a smile. My thoughts go out to her family.”

A Met spokesman said: “At this early stage, the death is being treated as unexplained. Enquiries into the full circumstances are ongoing.”
