A teenager has been charged with the murder of sisters Bibaa Henry and Nicole Smallman in Fryent Country Park.

Danyal Hussein, 18, of Guy Barnett Grove in south east London, will appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court today (July 2) charged with the murder of the two sisters and possession of a weapon.

Hussein was arrested at his home on Wednesday (July 1).

The sisters, who lived in Harrow and Brent, were found dead at Fryent Country Park on June 7, and were believed to have been stabbed in the early hours of June 6.

They were celebrating Bibaa’s 46th birthday at the park at the time.

A crime scene remained at the park since the murders as police investigated the murder.

North West BCU Commander Roy Smith said: “I would like to thank the local community for their support both with the investigation and the police activity at and around the scene.

“I know that colleagues from across the Met have been working tirelessly on this investigation. My officers will remain on patrol in the local area providing continued reassurance – please do stop and speak with them if you have any questions or concerns”

Two servicing officers were suspended after reports of them taking “non-official” and “inappropriate” photographs at the crime scene.

They were arrested on June 22 on suspicion of misconduct, but they were bailed pending further enquiries and suspended from duty.

It is believed that these photographs were selfies including the dead bodies, and they were shared through Whatsapp.

The sisters were in a group of people before the murder as they celebrated the birthday on June 5, but gradually attendees left and Nicole and Bibaa were the only ones remaining at around 12.30 am on June 6.

Both Nicole and Bibaa were reported as missing to police late on Saturday, 6 June when they did not return home; before they were discovered on Sunday.
