An 18-year-old man was arrested overnight on suspicion of murdering two sisters nearly a month after they were found stabbed to death in a London park.

Bibaa Henry, 46, and Nicole Smallman, 27, were killed in a frenzied knife attack at Fryent Park in Wembley, North West London, on June 5.

Scotland Yard arrested the teenager at a home in South London overnight on suspicion of both murders, and he was taken into custody where he remains today.

Detective Chief Inspector Simon Harding, who is leading the investigation at Specialist Crime, said: ‘This investigation into the awful death of two sisters is of course a priority for the MPS and my officers have been working around the clock to identify the person responsible.

‘Given the significance of this development, we visited the family in person today to inform them of the arrest. Our thoughts remain with them at this very difficult time.

‘A team of forensic officers have been a constant presence at the park over the last few weeks carrying out meticulous fingertip searches at what is a vast and complex crime scene. Whilst that work has now concluded, smaller searches in outer areas of the park will continue. To date officers have recovered more than 1,000 exhibits – including property belonging to both Nicole and Bibaa, collected hours of CCTV and visited hundreds of homes and businesses. And those enquiries remain ongoing.

‘I would continue to appeal to the public to come forward with any information they feel may be relevant to our investigation.’
