Woman And Two Children Found Dead In London

A murder investigation has been launched after the bodies of two children and awoman were found at a home in London.

The 33-year-old woman and two boys, one aged five years and the other seven months, were found at 5.20pm on Thursday at a property in Kenton, near Harrow.

At this stage the deaths of the children are being treated as murders, while police are not treating the death of the woman as suspicious and they are not looking for anyone else.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police Service said police were called to the property inWoodgrange Close to reports of a woman and two children with injuries.

When officers arrived, the three were pronounced dead at the scene by medical staff.

Post-mortem examinations would be held, police said.

The spokesman said: "Detectives are not seeking anyone else in connection with the incident."

Councillor Reg Colwill, who represents Kenton ward, said: "I think everybody is the same, they are shocked at what's happened.

"If it's accurate that the woman took her own life she must have been at her wits' end and didn't ask for help, or didn't get the help she asked for. It's two young children, it's very sad."
