The bodies of an elderly couple have been discovered at a house in Newcastle.

Officers said they were alerted to concerns about the couple, who have not been identified, by neighbours in Biddlestone Road, Heaton.

Northumbria Police were originally treating the deaths as "unexplained".

But after post-mortem examinations had taken place, the force said it was not looking for anyone else in connection with the deaths.
