One Direction star Louis Tomlinson's 18-year old sister Felicite has died after suffering a suspected cardiac arrest.

The aspiring fashion designer died at her flat in Earl's Court, west London, on Wednesday.

Her death is being treated as unexplained by police.

"Police were called by London Ambulance Service at 12.52 on Wednesday, March 13 to a residential address... following reports of a female in cardiac arrest," Scotland Yard said in a statement.

"A female believed to be aged 18 was pronounced dead at the scene.

"A post-mortem examination will take place in due course."

A person who was with her called 999, according to the Sun newspaper.

It is understood that Tomlinson, who is reportedly in London for a now-cancelled appearance on Friday night's Comic Relief, was told of her death.

Tomlinson's mother Johannah died from leukaemia in 2016.
