Metropolitan Police detectives are continuing enquiries after a man and girl were found dead at a home in Colville Square, Notting Hill.

Officers forced their way into the west London home on Friday (27 February, 2015) where they found the bodies of a man, believed to be in his 40s, and a girl, believed to be four-years-old.

Both were pronounced dead at the scene and a second child was taken to hospital by the London Ambulance Service where she remains in a stable condition.

Detectives believe they know the identities of the man and the four-year-old but await formal identification before naming them. Next of kin have been informed.

A post mortem examination was carried out on the man on Sunday, 1 March. However, the cause of death is still under investigation and further tests are being carried out.

A special post mortem is due to be carried out in the morning of Wednesday, 4 March, at Great Ormond Street Hospital on the four-year-old.

Police would not comment on the types of injuries sustained by the man and girl.

A woman, aged 36, was arrested at the address in connection with the deaths and remains in custody at a central London police station. At this stage detectives are not looking for anyone else in connection with the deaths.
