A mother found dead with her two children in their Kenton home has been named locally as Jeyavani Vageswaran.

Police found the bodies of the 33-year-old and her sons aged seven months and five, at their house in Woodgrange Close, yesterday evening.

Detectives believe Mrs Vageswaran killed her children before taking her own life and are not looking for anyone else in connection with her deaths.

According to neighbours Mrs Vageswaran was married to Sakthivel an accountant.

A company called Vaasi Accountancy is registered at the Sri-Lankan couple’s home.
