Mother used acid to kill herself and her two children

A mother poisoned herself and her two young daughters by drinking acid, an inquest has heard.

Heena Solanki, 34, was found dead alongside Jasmine, nine, and Prisha, four, at their home in Ruislip, west London, in April last year.

She had taken the substance from a locked cupboard at the school where she worked as a lab technician.

West London Coroner's Court heard Mrs Solanki was struggling to get on with her live-in parents-in-law.

BBC London's Sonja Jessup reported on the inquest.
