A man and a woman have been found dead at a house in Sleaford.

Lincolnshire police have launched an investigation into the two deaths, which the force says are being treated as unexplained.

Emergency services were called to a property in the Lincolnshire town just after 4pm on Sunday, after reports that two people had been injured.

The woman, believed to be in her 30s, and a man, thought to be in his 40s, were both discovered lifeless at the scene in George Street.

Formal identification is yet to be carried out, but specialist officers are working with the family of the victims.

DI Andy McWatt said: “Our thoughts are with the family and loved ones of those who have lost their lives.

“The tragic events of this afternoon must be a real shock to people living in the area and I want to make clear that we are doing all we can to find out exactly what has happened.

“We have a team of officers diligently working on this investigation and we are carrying out a number of lines of inquiry, and we are still keen to hear from the public.”

A cordon is in place at the scene while forensics teams complete examinations and local officers are in the area carrying out inquiries.

Members of the public who may have information have been urged to contact police.
