The bodies of four people believed to be from the same family have been found dead in a west London flat. 

Police were called at 3:12pm yesterday to concerns for the welfare of the occupants of a house in Staines Road, Bedfont.

When officers attended the house a short while later, after forcing entry into the premises, they found the bodies of a man and woman in their 30s, an 11-year-old girl and a three year-old boy.

Metropolitan Police said they believe to know the identity of all four people, who are thought to be related, but enquiries are under way in respect of formal identification and informing next of kin.

The Met’s investigation is being led by homicide detectives from Specialist Crime, who are continuing enquiries.

Chief Superintendent Sean Wilson, local policing commander in west London, said: ‘Our investigation is at a very early stage, and based on our initial enquiries, we are not currently seeking anybody else in connection with the incident.

‘I know the shock and distress that this terrible incident will cause among the community in Hounslow and beyond. 

‘I can assure local people that specialist officers are working to establish exactly what happened and I will provide further information as soon as I can.

‘I am also aware that this incident will be particularly upsetting for children, and I ask people to please be responsible about what they post on social media, including not naming or speculating as to the names of those who’ve died.

‘There will be additional police officers in the area across the weekend, I urge anyone with information or concerns to speak with those officers.’

Anyone with information that may assist the investigation is asked to call 101, quoting reference 5135/16Jun.
