A man has today been arrested on the suspicion of the murder of two toddlers who were stabbed to death in their home.

tragically nineteen-month-old Pavinya Nithiyakumar and three-year-old Nigish Nithiyakumar died after they were attacked with a knife in Ilford, East London.

Police say the 40-year-old man is still receiving treatment for his injuries which were at one stage critical.

The man remains under police guard officers will not leave his side until he is taken into police custody.

Metropolitan Police officers were called to the scene at an address on Aldborough Road North at around 5.30pm on Sunday to reports of a man and two children having been injured.

Pavinya was pronounced dead at the scene and Nigish was taken to hospital where he later died.

Detective Chief Inspector Vicky Tunstall called their deaths “extraordinarily tragic” and has called for anyone with any information to come forward.
