A man has pleaded guilty to the murder of his 71-year-old mother at her west London home.

Onees Khatoon, who died of strangulation, was found at the property in Gade Close, Hayes, on 13 May.

Her son, Majid Butt, 51, entered his plea at the Old Bailey via video link from Belmarsh Prison earlier.

Sentencing will take place on 12 September.
