Murder Detectives are studying CCTV after the body of a man was found at a house in Berkshire and another man is in hospital with stab wounds.

Officers say they there is no risk to the wider public. It's after officers were called to two separate addresses in Slough on Friday in Lower Cippenham Lane and also Lewins Way.

The man was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Investigating officer, Det Ch Insp Ailsa Kent of the Major Crime Unit at Thames Valley Police, said: “This is undoubtedly a distressing incident which will have caused concern within the local community. At this stage of the investigation no arrests have been made, however I believe that the only two people involved were the man who is currently under police supervision in hospital and the man who sadly died inside the property in Lewins Way. I am confident there is no risk to the wider public.
