A double murder investigation has been launched after the bodies of a man and woman were found inside a house.

Staffordshire Police said that officers were called by ambulance workers to an address on Alpine Drive, Hednesford, in Staffordshire at around 12.30pm on Tuesday.

The force said the bodies of a man and woman were found inside the property.

Staffordshire Police said in a statement: “Specially-trained officers have been assigned to support their families at this tragic time.

“A cordon has been set up in the area whilst we carry out enquiries to understand the circumstances of the deaths. We’d like to ask people not to speculate whilst we do this.

Emergency services were called yesterday lunchtime

“We’ve created an online portal where people can leave information they may have. You can access the Major Incident Public Portal, here: Public Portal (mipp.police.uk)”.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesperson said: "We were called to a concern for welfare at house in Hednesford on Tuesday lunchtime.

"Two paramedic officers and an ambulance were sent to an address on Alpine Drive.

"After gaining access to the property at just before 12.20pm, paramedics found a man and a woman inside.

"Sadly, it was immediately obvious that nothing could be done to save them and ambulance staff immediately alerted Staffordshire Police."
