The Leader of Hounslow Council, Councillor Shantanu Rajawat said: 

“I am deeply saddened to hear about the deaths of four people in Feltham North, a truly tragic event. My heartfelt sympathies go out to their family and friends at this extremely difficult time.  

“I know this will send shockwaves across our community but want to assure residents that the police are not currently seeking anybody else in connection with the incident. Specialist officers are working hard to establish exactly what happened in this incident.  

“I ask that residents please respect the police investigation at this crucial time while formal identification and informing next of kin is conducted.  

“As the police have stated, this incident will be particularly upsetting for children, and it is important that residents are responsible about what they post on social media, including not naming or speculating as to the names of those who’ve died. 

“I want to thank the Metropolitan Police and other blue light services for their work and the Council will continue to support the investigation in every way possible.” 

Anyone with information that may assist the investigation is asked to call 101, quoting reference 5135/16Jun.
