Police were called just before 6pm on April 26 to an address in Park Avenue, Newmarket, after a member of the public reported he had discovered the bodies of a woman and a young boy inside the premises.

Formal identification procedures are yet to take place, but it is understood that the woman was 28 years old and the child was aged four.
