Arthur’s Seat death fall tributes to ‘amazing gem of a lady’

Devastated friends have paid heartfelt tributes to a ‘beautiful’ mum-to-be who tragically died plunging from Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh while on her honeymoon.

We told how Fawziyah Javed is understood to have been recently married and visiting the capital when she was involved in the fatal incident at around 9pm on Thursday.

Police, paramedics and fire crews raced to the scene in Holyrood Park but the 31-year-old, from Pudsley, West Yorkshire, sadly could not be saved.

Police were seen outside her home

A source said she celebrated her wedding reception with loved ones in the region on Sunday before travelling to Scotland by train at the start of the week.

A 27-year-old has been arrested in connection with her death.

Now Yorkshire Live reports a police van remained outside Fawziyah’s home in Galloway Lane in the town with cops allegedly conducting searches.

The site reports a heartbroken neighbour broke down in tears as she described Fawziyah as a ‘beautiful person’.

Naseem Akhtar said: “I am very upset about her death, she was a very nice person.

“She had lived there for nine to 10 months. She was a beautiful person and seemed very sensible.

“Yesterday I was all day crying.”
