West Midlands Ambulance Service this afternoon confirmed the bodies of a man in his early 40s and woman in her late 40s had been found.

  • UPDATE: Deaths of man and woman 'not suspicious'

  • UPDATE: Husband and wife discovered dead in car named as Dave and Chev Cooke

Ambulance Service spokesman Jamie Arrowsmith, said: "On arrival, crews found two patients, a man and a woman, both of whom were inside a car.

"Unfortunately it quickly became apparent that nothing could be done to save either of them and they were confirmed dead at the scene."

Officers were called at around 12.30pm to the scene. Today there was police activity on the car park of Greenfield Golf Club.

A dog that was also in the car is now being cared for.

Bushbury North Councillor Ian Angus said: "It seems like awful, tragic circumstances. I would urge people not to speculate and await the outcome of the police investigation."

The police cordon was in place at the entrance to the golf club's car park, which is off a small road leading off Cat and Kitten Lane.

The club is next to a National Grid Base - but no other buildings are in the immediate vicinity.

Several drivers entering and exiting the National Grid Base pulled up to the cordon to look at what was happening.

No-one was at the golf club. A sign said the waterlogged course was closed due to weather conditions.

Councillor Daniel Warren, who also represents the same ward, said: "It is tragic, it is an unknown for Bushbury.

"I am completely shocked, my condolences go to the family of the people.

"I would appeal for anyone with any information to got to the police to help then in this very sad and tragic case."

Today, West Midlands Police spokeswoman Sarah Astbury said: "Police are investigating after two bodies were found in a car on Cat and Kittens Lane in Bushbury this lunchtime.

"The bodies have not been formally identified and we cannot release the gender at this stage.

"Officers are currently in the process of tracing family members.

"A dog has been removed from the car and has been taken to a local vet to be checked over.

"The area has been sealed off while enquiries are carried out."
