Two elderly men have been found dead in Edinburgh after police were called to a house in the south of the city.

Officers went to Lockerby Cottages, near Gracemount, at about 17:00. Neighbours have told the BBC they saw armed officers at the property.

Police said that, on gaining entry, two elderly men were found seriously injured and were pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers said they will remain at the house while inquiries continue.

The property at the centre of the incident is believed to be owned by a charity, the Lockerby Trust.

It owns 16 semi-detached houses in the street.

Police said later on Thursday evening that they are not looking for anyone else in connection with the deaths.
