Man arrested after double stabbing

Crime

An elderly man and a middle-aged woman have died after they were stabbed at a sheltered housing complex.

A man in his mid-80s and a woman in her mid-50s were attacked at the Fernways complex in east London, on Saturday night. They died at the scene.

A 50-year-old man was arrested at the home 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 known each other, but they were not related, a Scotland Yard spokesman said, adding that none of the three was a member of staff at the complex.

The two victims were discovered with stab injuries.
