A woman charged with the murder of a celebrity photographer's disabled son has been pictured.

Olga Freeman, 40, will appear at Uxbridge Magistrates' Court today following the discovery of the 10-year-old child's body at her flat in west London.

It came after a woman walked into a police station in the early hours of Sunday to speak to officers.

The boy was later found dead at a home in Cumberland Park, Acton, estimated to be worth around £544k.

Freeman is registered as living in the property and is believed to have known the child.

The child is understood to have lived with his mother, while his father has photographed many A-list stars.

Officers believe they know his identity but await formal identification.

A neighbour on the leafy street, named only as Guy, told The Sun the boy had a severe disability.

He said: "The boy lives in the bottom flat to the right and my friend lives above. He runs the building."

The neighbour went on: "He is pretty cut up about it. He said he doesn't really want to talk to anybody about it."

When asked about the victim, Guy added: "I never saw them out, I don't think they went out and about. They just had access to the garden."

Reverend Nick Jones, the rector of Acton, who also lives on Cumberland Park, said news of the boy's death was "shattering".

He said: "I'm still shaking a bit, it's hugely upsetting."

Another neighbour said he was "in shock" as he described how police cars and a private ambulance arrived at the scene at around 2.30am on Sunday.

The boy's next of kin have been informed and detectives from Specialist Crime are investigating.

A post-mortem examination will be arranged in due course.

The cause of death is yet to be announced.

Anyone with information which may assist the investigation is asked to call the Met Police incident room on 020 8721 4205.
