A man has been charged with murder after the body of a woman was found in a suitcase in a sports ground in north-west London.

The body was found after police searched a wooded area in Thornfield Avenue, Mill Hill, on 21 July.

Police have named the victim as Hungarian national Alexandra Kovacs, 25, who lived in the Mill Hill area.
