The devastated family of a newlywed bride who fell to her death from the Arthur’s Seat clifftop in Edinburgh just days after her wedding have called for ‘justice’ after police arrested a 27-year-old man.

Fawziyah Javed, 31, was declared dead at the scene of the Scottish landmark – an ancient volcano popular among hillwalkers as it is easy to scale – after the horror plunge on Thursday night.

It is thought that Ms Javed, who worked at Lyons Davidson Solicitors in Leeds, was in the early stages of a pregnancy before the incident last week. Police are treating her death as suspicious. 

Officers are understood to have been searching a home in Pudsey, West Yorkshire in connection with the probe. A 27-year-old man has been arrested, a statement from Police Scotland confirmed.

Ms Javed’s cousin has now issued a plea for ‘justice’ as he revealed that her death had left a ‘hole in our lives’.
