A brother and sister whose bodies were found at the foot of cliffs in Dover have been identified by police.

Twins Muriel and Bernard Burgess, aged 59, were discovered on New Year's Day.

The pair, both from the village of Elton in Cheshire, were found when Kent Police began a search for the body of 45-year-old Scott Enion from Manchester.

His death is not connected to the twins and all three deaths are being treated as non-suspicious.

Kent Police have appealed for help tracing the last movements of the twins.

They were wearing dark wet-weather clothing and police believe they may have been seen at the top of the cliffs between Boxing Day and New Year's Day.
