Mother Suspected Of Killing Her Two Children
A mother has been arrested on suspicion of killing her two children - including a newborn baby - at their home in southwest London.
The bodies of a 10-week-old boy and a 14-month-old girl were discovered at the house in Killarney Road in Wandsworth on Wednesday at 7.25pm.
Paramedics pronounced the children dead at the scene.
A woman in her mid-30s was arrested at the semi-detached property and is being questioned at a south London police station, Scotland Yard said.
An investigation is under way, spearheaded by detectives from the force's Child Abuse Investigation Command, and enquiries being made into the full circumstances of the incident.
Officers are investigating the possibility that the suspect was suffering from post-natal depression.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "Post-mortem examinations will take place in due course. Next of kin are aware."
Neighbour Jackie Cook, 52, said: "It's such a tragedy, I can't believe it.
"Last night, there were police swarming everywhere. There were ambulances and police cars all along the road.
"I think they only moved a couple of weeks ago."
Another neighbour, who did not want to be named, said the family seemed "very nice".
She said: "It's a lovely area. We're very shocked."
