A married couple found dead in their bungalow have been described as "quiet, kind and lovely".

The couple, named locally as Jonathan and Reecey Trenchard, were found by police at Polwithen Drive in Carbis Bay, St Ives, Cornwall at about 11:35 BST on Wednesday.

A police spokesman said they were not looking for anyone else in relation to the inquiry.

The couple were found following a report of concern for the occupants.

It is believed the call came from a colleague of Mr Trenchard, after he failed to turn up to work at a nearby factory.

It is understood that the couple, who are in their late 40s, had several children, with one still living at home.

Friends and neighbours have laid flowers outside the bungalow.

'Absolutely shocked'

Margret Simons said: "I don't see them often, but I always send a Christmas card and always say 'hello' if I do see them.

"I'm shocked, just absolutely shocked, nothing like this happens to us, it's all close to home."

Another neighbour said there were "kind and lovely".

The bungalow has been sealed off since Wednesday and police officers from Devon and Cornwall Police force's Major Crime Investigation Team are examining the scene.

Det Supt Jim Caldwell said: "We've got dedicated family liaison officers working with the family to ascertain exactly what has been going on inside the family home over the weeks and days leading up to the tragic events.

"Another focus of the investigation will be a continuing forensic examination of the scene."

The force said that formal identification has not yet been carried out.
