A WOMAN has been arrested on suspicion of murder after two toddlers - believed to be twins - were found dying in a house yesterday.

They were discovered after the 37-year-old, believed to be their mum, was involved in a car crash with a lorry.

Police are understood to think the car was smashed deliberately into the back of the truck.

Cops at the scene spoke to the woman and went to her address where they found the children.

The toddlers, believed to be two-year-olds, were taken to hospital but were pronounced dead after a frantic battle to save them.

Yesterday, forensic teams were seen going into the £210,000 semi-detached new build and officers removed two pillows in evidence bags. The woman was taken to a different hospital with minor injuries.

She is thought to have crashed her Ford Galaxy on the A299 between Whitstable and Herne Bay, Kent, at around 2.50am.

After being discharged from hospital she was taken into police custody where she is being questioned.

A Kent Police spokesperson said: "Detectives from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate have arrested a woman on suspicion of murder following the deaths of two children in Margate.

"At around 3.35am on Thursday 27 December 2018 officers attended a property in Castle Drive, Margate due to concerns for the welfare of the occupants.

"The South East Coast Ambulance Service also attended and two young children were taken to hospital, where they were later declared deceased.

"Police remain at the scene and a 37-year-old woman from Margate has been arrested on suspicion of murder.

"The woman had been involved in a road traffic collision on the A299 Thanet Way at around 2.50am and was taken to hospital with minor injuries.

"She has now been discharged and taken into custody at a police station."

Forensic officers were today pictured examining the home in Margate.
