Man, 27, charged after newlywed bride dies in fall from cliff on her honeymoon

Newlywed bride Fawziyah Javed, 31, of Pudsey, West Yorkshire, was in Edinburgh just two days after celebrating her wedding with family when she fell from Arthur’s Seat

A man has been charged in connection with the death of a newlywed bride who fell from a popular Edinburgh beauty spot.

Recently married Fawziyah Javed, 31, from Pudsey, West Yorkshire, had reportedly travelled to the city just two days after celebrating her wedding day.

But while visiting the Arthur’s Seat landmark in Holyrood Park at around 9pm on Thursday, she tragically fell to her death.

Emergency services rushed to the scene but despite their best efforts, the 31-year-old died at the scene.

In a statement, Police Scotland said a 27-year-old man has been charged in connection with the suspicious death.

He is expected to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Monday.

Detective Inspector Bob Williamson said: “Fawziyah’s family ask for their privacy to be respected during this extremely difficult time.

“I’d like to thank the officers and partners who attended the scene on Thursday evening and have assisted with our ongoing inquiries.”

Fawziya worked at Lyons Davidson Solicitors in Leeds and was heavily involved in charity work before she got married late last year.

It is believed she celebrated her wedding reception with her loved ones on Sunday before travelling to Scotland by train at the start of the week.

The source also claimed that Fawziyah was thought to be in the early stages of a pregnancy before her tragic death.

And 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.”

Zareef Zaf Latif posted: “Fawziyah, our precious niece taken away from us way too soon. Have so many memories of you as a little girl.

“Will miss you so much. May Allah grant you a special place in Jannat. I hope the angels take care of you until we meet again.”

Arfan Arfy wrote: “Lovely amazing gem of a lady, she will be truly missed. May Allah swt give you janatul firdous and give family saber in this difficult time Ameen.”

Sandra Barraclough wrote: “Fly high gorgeous, you and your baby will be forever happy.”

West Yorkshire Police officers are believed to have been searching a property in Pudsey, West Yorkshire, on Friday afternoon, which is believed to be connected to the fatal fall.

The Mirror has contacted West Yorkshire Police for comment.

Last month it was reported that a 41-year old man had died at Arthur’s seat at the Salisbury Crags area on July 17.

The cause of death was reported as a fall and police did not treat the death as suspicious
