Girl, 11, dies in ‘chemical incident’ in Shadwell
An 11-year-old girl has died and several others are in hospital after ‘pest control’ chemicals were found in a block of flats in Tower Hamlets.
Fatiha Sabrin, 11, was found unresponsive in her home alongside her brother and mum in Nida House on Sutton Street, Shadwell, on Saturday afternoon.
Fatiha, who went to Buttercup Primary School and dreamt of becoming a doctor, was rushed to an East London hospital where she tragically died a short time later.
Other residents in the building also reported feeling unwell and three people were taken to hospital, where they remain.
After an evacuation, the London Fire Brigade swept the building and discovered a ‘quantity of chemicals’ believed to be used for pest control.
The 11-year-old girl’s death is currently being treated as unexplained and the Met said a special post-mortem examination will be scheduled in due course.

Kensington ‘gunman’ dies after being ‘shot by police’
A man was shot dead on Saturday afternoon shortly after armed response stopped a car in Kensington, West London.
The incident started to unfold at the junction of Kensington Road and Palace Gate, SW7, at around 3.20pm. Shots were fired, and a man was pronounced dead at 4.08pm.
The Met Police say the man had earlier entered a bank and betting shop armed with a firearm around Marloes Road, where they had been called to just after 3pm.
Police have refused to say whether the shots were fired by officers or if anything was stolen from the bank or betting shop.
However, one eyewitness told The Sun that the man was shot by police while he was inside a car after appearing to refuse orders to show his hands.
Police say the incident has been referred to the IOPC and it is not being treated as terrorism.
