Two found dead in east London 'may be linked'

Two bodies found at separate addresses in east London may be linked, police have said.

A woman, believed to be in her late 20s, was found with stab wounds, in Brymay Close, Bow, on Tuesday morning.

Two days earlier, a man was discovered hanged at Weavers Fields Park, Bethnal Green. Both were dead when they were found.

The police watchdog is understood to be examining previous contact by officers with the man and the woman.

The Metropolitan Police Service said it had referred matters in connection with the deaths to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

The man's next of kin have been informed.
