A woman accused of murdering her own twins on Boxing Day has had a court appearance delayed as she has “gone back to health care”.

Samantha Ford, 37, was arrested on Thursday after 23-month-old Jake and Chloe were found at a house in Castle Drive, Margate.

She had been involved in a car crash and taken to hospital less than an hour before the children were discovered at the property.

The toddlers were taken to hospital where they were pronounced dead.

Ford was due to appear at Maidstone Crown Court via video link on Monday charged with murdering Jake and Chloe on December 26.

She had been available earlier in the morning but had “gone back to health care” by the time of the hearing, Ronnie Manek, for the defence, said.
