In a statement issued last night, the force said: ‘Officers were called to an address in Barrett Drive at 6.25pm following the discovery of a man and a woman inside the property.

‘Extensive inquiries have taken place and, at this stage, officers are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident.

‘The investigation into the circumstances surrounding the deaths is continuing.’

The spokeswoman said formal identification was likely to take place later today.

Police remain at the house today.

One neighbour said: ‘We heard a police car come up the road at about 6.30pm with its sirens on.’

Of the people at whose address the investigation is taking place, the neighbour said: ‘We’ve known them for a while, she was more outgoing, he was more quiet.

‘It’s not the sort of thing you expect to happen in a quiet little street like this.

‘There are only about a dozen houses and we all know one another.’

People living in the tiny street, which has just 13 houses, spoke of their shock at the incident.

One resident said: ‘It’s like something you see on TV, it’s not real,’ said one.

‘We’ve only lived here 18 months. One of the things we liked is how quiet it is.

‘We don’t know what’s happened. The first thing we knew was when police knocked on the door. We thought at first there had been a burglary.’
