Two people have been found stabbed to death at a flat in Fulham, south west London, in a suspected murder-suicide incident. Metropolitan Police were called to reports of a stabbing at the residential address in Fulham Court in the early hours of 20 June.

Officers and the London Ambulance Service attended and found a man and a woman, both aged in their 50s, inside the address suffering stab injuries. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers have now launched a murder investigation but said they were not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident.

The probe is being led by Detective Chief Inspector Mark Lawson of the Homicide and Major Crime Command and a post-mortem examination will be scheduled in due course as well as formal identification of the deceased. Next-of-kin have also been informed.

A Met Police spokesperson said: "Enquiries continue to establish the full circumstances of the incident, however at this early stage in the investigation detectives are not seeking anyone else in connection with the incident."

Police are asking anyone with information to call the incident room 020 8358 0200; or to remain anonymous, call 0800 555 111.
