Additionally, a man near the scene was detained in connection with the event.

The man and woman, who were familiar to both of the kids, are still being interrogated by the police.


Police statements so far

Detective Inspector Sean Treweek said:

“This is clearly an extremely distressing incident with many unanswered questions, however at this very early stage, nobody else is sought in connection with the deaths.

“I want to thank local people for the assistance they have given officers as they begin work along with partner agencies to establish the full circumstances of these two tragic deaths.

“They will see additional officers in the area, and anyone with information or concerns should speak with those officers.”
