This evening the police, ambulance and the majority of the press left Pentlow Street, but the Independent Police Complaints Commission confirmed that the case had been referred to them.

It appears that one of the women found dead in the second floor flat in Norman Court had been in contact with Police as she had been a victim of harassment - no further details have been release as yet.

The Telegraph have reported that the woman, who has not been identified and is described as a black Somali aged about 28, first contacted police up to two years ago to complain of harrasment. She moved to a flat run by a women's charity in Putney, south west London, but was believed to have been in "recent" contact with police again speaking of her fears.

Sky News reported that the two women were sex workers, citing unidentified sources.
