A MUM was under arrest yesterday night after her two babies were found dead in a well-to-do area packed with kids and nicknamed Nappy Valley.
Stylist Felicia Boots was being held at a police station after devastated husband Jeff returned home to discover the lifeless bodies of his ten-week-old son Tej and 14-month-old daughter Lily Skye. The tiny pair had apparently been smothered to death.
Neighbour Oliver Jones, 27, came home to see banker Mr Boots sobbing in the street outside his house.
He said: "The poor man looked inconsolable ù he didn't say anything, he was beyond words.
"He was outside in the street, he was sobbing.
"It's not something you'd expect to happen round here. It's a great shock that something like this can happen to people who are very much like ourselves."
Residents in the quiet road in Wandsworth, South West London, said they did not know Mr Boots and his wife very well because they had only recently moved in.
But they said the couple had seemed "lovely".
Business consultant Mr Jones added: "We were looking forward to welcoming them. We were planning to go over and introduce ourselves. It's a lovely community and we all know one another."
The posh area is dubbed Nappy Valley due to its high population of well-off parents who live there with their very young children.
Police cordoned off the family's street at 7.30pm on Wednesday.
Paramedics were called to the scene, but were unable to save the tragic children.
Two officers remained on guard yesterday outside Mr Boots' plush semi-detached home which still had a For Sale sign outside.
