A woman who was found dead next to her sister in a Wembley park sparking a murder probe was a Buckinghamshire Council social worker.

Bibaa Henry, who reportedly worked at the council since around 2017, was found unresponsive in Fryent Country Park in Wembley on Sunday, June 7, alongside her sister Nicole Smallman.

Bibaa, 46, and Nicole, 27, who lived in Harrow and Brent respectively, had been among a group of around 10 people who were celebrating Bibaa's birthday on June 5.

Gradually everyone else left and Bibaa and Nicole remained at the park.

The Met Police have launched a murder investigation.

"She will be very much missed by all of us here at the council.

“On behalf of everyone at Buckinghamshire Council, can I convey our heartfelt condolences to Bibaa’s family, friends and colleagues at this most difficult of times.”

Detectives from the Specialist Crime Command (Homicide) are investigating the sisters' deaths, with the assistance of officers from the North West Command Unit and a crime scene is still in place in the park.

Senior investigating officer DCI Simon Harding said: “We are in the very early stages of the investigation and are working hard to find out what led to these two women losing their lives. Their families have been devastated by their loss and they need answers. They have asked that their privacy is respected at this time as they come to terms with this horrific incident.
