A man has been arrested on suspicion of the murder of a one-year-old boy and the attempted murder of a girl, believed to be his twin.

Metropolitan Police had been searching for Bidhya Sagar Das, 33, in connection with the investigation.

He was arrested in the Hackney area of London at 7.15pm on Sunday night.

An ambulance took them to hospital, but the boy died just before 1am on Sunday.

The girl remains in a critical condition.
