Metropolitan Police said they arrested a man and a woman following the grisly discovery – made just nine days before Christmas – at a property in Cornwallis Road in Dagenham.  

The force said officers and the London Ambulance Service found the bodies of a two-year-old and a five-year-old shortly after 2pm on Friday. They were both pronounced dead at the scene. 

The Met added that their family have been informed and will be supported by specialist officers.
