Officers were called to the unnamed hotel at 3pm this afternoon, and a Metropolitan Police spokesman has confirmed that a body, positively identified as that of the British National Party Leader, was found hanged from a shower attachment.
Griffin, 50, was known to have been suffering from depression following a recent television appearance.
Having been asked to take part in the BBC Television series 'Who Do You Think You Are?', Mr Griffin had reportedly traced his family back to the Battle of Hastings in 1066. However, he had been traumatised to discover that his great-great-great-great-great-grandfather was, in fact, Nicola de Gryphone, the illegitimate son of a French noblewoman and a Moorish warrior, and whose archers were directly responsible for the death of King Harold.
A source close to Mr Griffin said that the far-right 'politician' had been unable to deal with the emotional pain of being a 'racial foreigner', according to the BNP's own rules, and that he was facing expulsion from the BNP on the grounds of 'being a darkie'.
The Metropolitan Police spokesman said that they were not looking for anyone else in connection with the death, and that anyway they couldn't really be bothered to investigate it.
