A manhunt is under way after a mother and daughter were found stabbed to death in a brutal attack in their home.
The women, aged 66 and 33, were pronounced dead at house in Golders Green, north London, last night and the suspect remains at large.
The Metropolitan Police are now hunting for Joshua Cohen, 27, a man known to the two victims and that he should not be approached by members of the public.
