An inquiry is under way after two men were found dead at a house in Cornwall.

The bodies of the men, believed to be in their late 20s and early 30s, were discovered by police at an address in Moorlands Lane, Saltash, on Saturday.

The deaths of the men, who were local, are being treated as "unexplained" and police are awaiting results of post-mortem examinations.

A police spokesperson added that there had been an "unusual odour coming from the address".

As a result, the house and neighbouring premises were vacated while Cornwall Fire Service carried out investigations.
