A woman was taken to hospital after being pulled from a lake near Surrey Quays shopping centre.

Police say the woman was unconscious but breathing and was taken to a central London hospital for treatment.

An air ambulance, ambulances and police were called to the lake near Decathlon sports store and Surrey Quays shopping centre at about 11am today, Monday.
