A 44-year-old man has been charged with the murder of a fellow care home resident at a residential home in west London.

Rajinder Pall, of Lansbury Drive, Hayes, will appear in custody at Uxbridge Magistrates' Court on Thursday in connection with the death of John Hallisey, 60.

Mr Hallisey was assaulted at the supported unit in Lansbury Drive on Monday evening.

Despite the efforts of paramedics he died at the scene.

His next of kin continue to be supported by detectives from the Met's Specialist Crime Command, Scotland Yard said in a statement.

A post-mortem carried out on Wednesday found his cause of death was compression to the neck.

The Metropolitan Police said both Mr Hallisey and Pall were residents at the facility.
