Husband ‘kills wife, 26, in front of crying children before taking own life’ –

He said: “This is a truly tragic incident: it’s understood the woman was violently attacked before the offender took his own life.

“The timeline of exactly what happened is unclear but we believe the two people died during the morning.

“There were three children, including a small baby, present at the address when officers made the discovery − they are being looked after by loved ones and will receive specialist support.”

A post mortem examination is due to take place on the bodies later today.

Police and at least three ambulances rushed to the semi-detached house, home to what neighbours described as as an Eastern European couple, on Saturday afternoon.

The property is thought to belong to a housing association.

Another neighbour said: “It’s such a shock, I can’t believe it. Nothing usually happens here, it’s really quiet.

“I just feel for the kids, you know, because they’ve lost their mum and their dad.”

Two police officers guarded the property on a new cul-de-sac popular with young families, in an unmarked car parked on the drive.

The curtains in the front room of the house where the two bodies were found and a trampoline was left in the back garden next to a child’s ride-along car could be seen.
