Mum and toddler who may have starved to death had no food or possessions in home

There is no evidence Lillian Oluk, 36, and daughter Lynne Mutumba, two, had eaten for days before they died, an inquest heard

A mum with HIV and her daughter who had been told to leave Britain may have starved to death in desperate poverty, an inquest heard.

Lillian Oluk, 36, and her two-year-old daughter Lynne Mutumba were found dead in their one-bedroom flat.

A harrowing inquest was told there was no medical reason for their deaths but various examinations suggested Lillian was suffering from malnutrition and starvation and little Lynne had been dehydrated.

They had no food in the house and no possessions other than the clothes on their back, the court heard.

Lillian was also not taking her medication for HIV and sickle cell anaemia when they were found at their flat in Gillingham, Kent, on March 14.

Coroner Kate Thomas recorded open verdicts into their deaths following the inquest at Old Gravesend Town Hall.
