A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “Whilst we await formal identification we believe the victim to be Kirsty Treloar.”

Police and London Ambulance Service were called to reports of a disturbance.

The young woman was reported to have been abducted by a suspect who fled in a grey Fiat Stilo, Scotland Yard said.

At around 8:30am, police and ambulance crews received calls to Ryder Mews where a grey Fiat Stilo had been found abandoned with the injured woman inside.

She was pronounced dead at 8:34am, a police spokesman said.

A 22-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman were taken from the house in Brownlow Road to an east London hospital after suffering stab wounds.

The man is said to be in a stable condition and the woman was treated for a minor injury.

A month-old baby girl was also taken from the address to hospital as a precaution and remained there last night under observation.

A post-mortem examination for Ms Treloar will take place in due course.
