Detective Inspector James Holmes said: “My thoughts, and those of my team, are with the families and we are working hard to provide them with answers.

“We are making good progress with our investigation and are building a picture of the circumstances which led up to Kelly and Jonathan’s deaths.

“At this stage we do not believe anyone else was involved in the incident and we are not looking for anyone else in connection with it.

“However, we do still need the help of the public and I would urge anyone who has any information about the movements of Kelly and Jonathan, or if they saw or heard anything suspicious, in the days leading up to Tuesday to contact us.”
