A woman from Limehouse has been charged with the murder of a young woman. 

Rabia Aktar, 44, of Ratcliffe Lane, will appear at Barkingside Magistrates' Court today (May 30), accused of murdering Sadiya Akter. 

It comes a week after the Metropolitan Police were called to an address in Ratcliffe Lane with reports of a woman unresponsive on May 23.

At the property, 21-year-old Sadiya was pronounced dead. 

A woman in her mid-40s was also found at the scene with injuries and was taken to hospital. She was later arrested on suspicion of murder. 

In a statement, the Met have confirmed the women were known to each other. 

Det Ch Supt James Conway, the local policing lead for Tower Hamlets and Hackney, previously said his thoughts were with Sadiya's family.

He had said that officers would be providing community reassurance at Ratcliffe Lane in the days after the incident.
