She was remanded in custody until Monday where she will appear at Maidstone Crown Court.

Less than an hour before the twins were found in the home, Ford was involved in a car crash and taken to hospital where she was treated for minor injuries.

Police then visited her Kent home out of concern for the welfare of its occupants.

The children were taken to hospital but were pronounced dead.
