Detectives have launched a murder investigation after three people were found dead.

Police were called to a property in west London on Friday afternoon where they found a 30-year-old man dead on a first floor roof in Westbourne Park Road.

His death is being treated as unexplained, the Metropolitan Police said.

The following day police went to Landor House, in Westbourne Park Road, to inform the man's next of kin.

But on entering the house just before 1.30pm they discovered the bodies of a man and woman. They were pronounced dead at the scene.

Both are believed to have died in suspicious circumstances and a murder investigation has been launched.

Formal identification has not taken place and a post-mortem examination will take place in due course.

Next of kin have been informed of the deaths, but police have not released the names of the victims.

No arrests have been made, but police are not looking for anyone else in connection with this incident at this stage.

However they stressed that enquiries continue.

Forensics officers wearing light blue protective clothing and white masks are searching a flat in the two-storey Landor House.

A blue forensics tent has been erected outside the 1960s block of flats.

Three bouquets of flowers have been left in tribute outside the home.

Police have cordoned off the area with blue and white tape and uniformed officers are standing guard.

Residents in the block are having to sign in and out when they leave their homes.
