“We are in the early stages of a large investigation into what has happened, it is too early to be able to come up with a definitive explanation and we will be keeping an open mind. However from our initial enquiries we do not believe there is any threat to the wider community.
“Our priorities now are to establish the circumstances behind the woman’s death and how it maybe related to the deaths of the three children. Police are appealing for anyone who has information that may help the investigation to contact police on 101.”
The property in London Road South has been cordoned off and officers remain on scene.
