An investigation is ongoing after the deaths of man and a child in Notting Hill.Â The investigation is being carried out by the Homicide and Major Crime Command.
Shortly before 20:00hrs on Friday, 27 February officers from Kensington and Chelsea Borough attended an address in Colville Square, W11, following concerns for the welfare of occupants there.
After forcing entry to the address, officers found the bodies of a man, believed to be in his 40s, and a girl, believed to be four-years-old.Â Â Both were pronounced dead at the scene.
A second child was taken to hospital by the London Ambulance Service.Â She remains in hospital in a stable condition.
Detectives believe they know the identities of the man and the four-year-old.Â However, we await formal identification before naming them.Â Next of kin have been informed.
A post mortem examination was carried out on the man on Sunday, 1 March.Â 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.
Until the cause of both deaths has been established we will not comment upon any injuries sustained.
A woman, aged 36, was arrested at the address in Notting Hill on 27 February, in connection with the deaths and she remains in custody at a central London police station.
At this stage detectives are not looking for anyone else in connection with the deaths.
Detectives are continuing to make enquiries within the local area, and the investigation continues.
