Epstein, who was arrested at the beginning of last July, was found hanged in his cell around 07.30, local time (11.30 GMT), says the Times.

New York emergency services received a jail call about a possible case of heart failure.

Last July, Epstein was already found unconscious in his cell in Manhattan with marks on his neck and authorities were investigating whether it had already been a suicide attempt.
