The deaths of two teenage girls who were among five children killed in a house fire have left the school "devastated", its head has said.

Hanua Kua, 14, and her sister Basma, 13, died at their home in Neasden, north-west London, on Saturday.

Their mother Muna Elmufatish, 41, sister Amal, nine, and brothers Mustafa, five, and Yehya, two, also died at the house in Sonia Gardens.

The children's older sister Nur, 16, is in a critical but stable condition in hospital, while their father, Bassam Kua, 51, is described as stable.

Bev Bell, principal of Crest Girls' Academy, said that plans were being made for a memorial, and steps taken to provide support for students affected by the tragedy.
