The bodies of a man and woman have been found at a house in Caister-on-Sea.

Norfolk Police were called to an address in Upper Grange Crescent, in Caister-on-Sea yesterday after concerns about the people inside.

Officers forced their way in and found the bodies of a man and a woman.

The house is cordoned off and the deaths are being treated as unexplained.

Post mortem examinations are expected to take place on the pair later today.


Police say a window cleaner raised the alarm after calling at the property on his rounds. He had become suspicious because of bottles of milk lined up outside the home.

The deaths are being treated as a mystery but it is not thought there were any obvious signs of injury or a disturbance.

Detective Inspector Sarah Pettengell said: "Whilst the deaths are currently being treated as unexplained, we are not looking for anyone else in connection with them. We are continuing to carry out inquiries at the house and the focus of our investigation is inside the property."

One theory being investigated is that the couple suffered carbon monoxide poisoning from a faulty heating system.

Window cleaner Roy Holland, 39, called police at lunchtime on Tuesday after discovering the couple. He had cleaned their windows for more than a decade and said they had been a "lovely, friendly couple". Mr Holland added: "I'm a bit overwhelmed by it all - it's a terrible thing to happen.''
