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.

Until post-mortem examinations are carried out early next week, it is likely the deaths will remain unexplained.

However, based on initial findings, detectives do not currently believe there is any third-party involvement.
