Double death in Wheathampstead

TWO bodies were found in a house in Wheathampstead over the weekend.

The discovery in the Marford Road property was made by police at around 2pm on Saturday after concerns were raised for the welfare of the two people inside, thought to be a mother and her disabled daughter who was in her 30s.

A spokesperson for Herts Police said officers from the Major Crime Unit are trying to establish the exact circumstances of the deaths but nobody else is thought to have been involved.

Post mortem examinations will be taking place this afternoon.
