A double murder investigation has been launched following the deaths of a man and a woman in Ilford.
Police were called shortly before 22:20hrs on Saturday, 5 September, to a residential care home on Cecil Road, Ilford following reports of an assault.

Officers, London Ambulance Service and London’s Air Ambulance attended. Two people – a man and a woman – were found suffering stab injuries.

The woman, aged in her mid-50s, was pronounced dead at the scene at 22:50hrs.

The man, aged in his mid-80s, was pronounced dead at the scene at 23:05hrs.

Officers know the identities of the deceased and next of kin have been informed. Formal identification has not taken place.

A 50-year-old man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of murder and taken to an east London police station where he remains in custody.

Both of the victims and the man arrested are believed to have been known to each other, but they were not related. None of the three was a member of staff at the care home.

Post-mortem examinations will be held on the afternoon of Sunday, 6 September, at East Ham Mortuary.

Detectives from the Homicide and Major Crime Command are investigating.

An incident room has opened at Lewisham police station under Detective Chief Inspector Rebecca Reeves.

Officers remain at the scene and will be speaking with residents to provide reassurance. Detectives are not seeking anyone else in connection with the investigation.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 020 8721 4868, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
