A mother has been charged with the murder of her five-year-old daughter in west London, the Metropolitan Police has said.
Police officers and the London Ambulance Service were called to a property on Leyborne Avenue in Ealing at 12.56pm on Tuesday, following concerns for the welfare of the occupants.
Officers and an ambulance crew tried to save the five-year-old girl, who has been named as Aijah Thomas, but she was pronounced dead at the scene.
Her mother, Martina Madrova, 41, of Leyborne Avenue, was charged on Wednesday with her murder.
She is expected to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court today in connection with the death.
The girl’s next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specially trained officers.
A post-mortem examination has been scheduled for today, the Met Police added.
