The bodies of two women have been found at a property in Nottingham, with police believing they may have been there "for some time".

Police said they were called after concerns were raised over the welfare of people at a property in Hartley Road, Radford, at 11.04am on Tuesday.

Officers gained entry to the address and found the two bodies inside.

No arrests have been made and it is unclear how the women died.

There is "no immediate risk to the public", said Detective Chief Inspector Ruby Burrow of Nottinghamshire Police.

"We are keeping an open mind into what has happened at this address and will be working hard over the next few days to establish how and when these two women lost their lives.

"In the meantime my thoughts - and those of every other officer involved in this investigation - are with those who have died, their family and friends."

A nearby shop worker on the road described the discovery as "shocking".

The worker, in Food Basket African Butchers & Grocers, said he first saw a police officer on the street at about midday on Tuesday then saw a police vehicle later in the afternoon.

"We saw a police car yesterday and this morning, I thought it was normal, routine," he said.

"It is surprising, it's quite shocking."
