The woman accused of murdering her four-year-old son in Plumstead on Sunday has been named.

Oluwakemi Badare, 36, has been charged with murdering Kingswealth Bayode at her home in Invermore Place in Plumstead, south east London.

The four-year-old was found 'lifeless' on Sunday morning after emergency crews attended reports of the death of a child.

Police previously stated that the two unamed parties were related, but the court has now heard that the accused is the victim's mother.
