The identities of the women have not yet been confirmed.

Sky News reports that two teams of forensic investigators are currently working the scene, a block of six flats in the area.

One of the men is believed to have been arrested at an address about half a mile away from the site.

Metropolitan Police have confirmed that one 50-year-old man was arrested on Monday, 29 April "... on suspicion of murder following the discovery of two bodies at an address in Canning Town."

They stated this afternoon that a second man, a 34-year-old, had also been arrested on suspicion of murder.

Both men remain in custody at an east London police station.

North-East command unit commander detective chief superintendent Richard Tucker said:

“The launch of any murder investigation is naturally of concern to the local community and we have borough officers in the area supporting colleagues from the Homicide and Major Crime Command as they investigate the full circumstances.

“A crime scene is in place and we would encourage anyone with information about what may have happened at this premises to contact police on 101, quoting CAD 4303/26APR.”

The investigation is ongoing.
