Two men have been found dead following an attack at a caravan park in Shropshire.

A 67-year-old was first discovered at Knowle Sands caravan park, in Bridgnorth, at 16:15 BST on Thursday.

The body of a second man, thought to be in his 70s, was later found on a track in the area.

West Mercia Police believes the deaths are linked and said officers were not looking for anyone else in connection with the investigation.

"This is clearly a very tragic incident that has seen two men lose their lives and our thoughts are with their family and friends at this difficult time," Det Ch Insp Mark Bellamy said.
