58-year-old Paddy Bowden has been found dead in her home in Chiswick this Monday (18 May).

An ambulance was called to the house but she was pronounced dead at the scene.

She had brought up her three children in Chiswick along with her husband Bruce Dickinson, the lead singer of Iron Maiden. The couple were believed to be separated after being married for 29 years.

Bruce Dickinson said in a statement to the Independent, “This is a terrible tragedy which appears to be a tragic accident.

“Our children Austin, Griffin and Kia and I are devastated.

“Out of respect for Paddy we won’t be making any further comment at this hugely difficult and painful time for our family.”

London Ambulance Service confirmed they were called at 9.42am. A spokesperson said, “We sent two ambulance crews to the scene – the first one arriving within two minutes. Sadly, the patient had already died.”

Paramedics were described as entering the property in protective suits although this is believed to have been a standard precaution.

Bruce Dickinson was diagnosed with throat and tongue cancer back in 2015 and his wife helped nurse him back to health. He was given the all clear after six months of treatment.
