A man has been charged with the murder of a West Hampstead barmaid after she was found dead at a house in Harrow.

Police were called in the early hours of Tuesday of last week to reports of a serious assault at a property in Berridge Green. They found 34-year-old Natalia Czekaj dead at the scene.

A post-mortem examination took place the next day and gave her cause of death as shock, haemorrhage and multiple stab wounds.

Ms Czekaj, a Polish national, was a barmaid at The Alliance pub in Mill Lane, West Hampstead.

James Richardson, 34, of Berridge Green, has been charged with her murder and is due to appear in court in April.
