Police in Britain are investigating after a woman who traveled to London from Ireland for an abortion died hours after the procedure had taken place.
The 32 year old foreign national died in a taxi hours after the procedure at a West London Clinic.
London Metropolitan Police confirmed to the Irish Times it is investigating the incident which took place in January 2012.
The 32 year old woman, who was legally resident in Ireland, sought an abortion at a maternity hospital in Dublin but was told that it was not legally possible to provide one in this jurisdiction.
She is understood to have had a condition which raised the risk of miscarriage, although it was not believed to be in any way life-threatening.
The clinic has declined to comment on the case on the basis of client confidentiality.
The womanÂ’s husband, who wishes to remain anonymous, said he is still waiting for answers but is frustrated at the lack of progress.
Thousands of Irish women travel to the UK for abortions every year. Last year almost 4,000 women from the Republic had a termination in Britain.
