A man has been charged with murdering two sisters who were stabbed to death in a London park.

The bodies of Nicole Smallman, 27, and Bibaa Henry, 46, were found at Fryent Gardens in Wembley on 7 June, two days after a birthday party in the park.

Danyal Hussein, of Guy Barnett Grove, Blackheath, has been charged with killing both women and possession of an offensive weapon, the Met said.

The 18-year-old is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court later.

The sisters had met up with friends in the park from about 19:00 BST on 5 June to celebrate Ms Henry’s birthday.

They were found dead two days later.

A post-mortem examination gave the cause of both of their deaths as stab wounds.
