Two Nigerians are accused of plotting to harvest the organs of a child in Britain.

The Metropolitan Police said Beatrice Ekweremadu, 55, and Ike Ekweremadu, 60, have been charged with conspiracy to arrange for organ harvesting of a child.

They both conspired to facilitate the travel of the child with a view to exploitation.

They are due to appear before Uxbridge Magistrates' Court later on Thursday.

The child has been taken into care.
