A 72-year-old man and a 57-year-old woman have been found dead inside a house, police said today.

The deceased have not been named by police while next-of-kin were being informed.

Police refused to be drawn on whether the case was a murder inquiry amid
speculation that one of the couple may have killed the other before
taking their own life.

Detectives have said they are not seeking anyone else in connection with the deaths.
