Four people have been found dead at a property near Norwich, according to police.

The Norfolk force said officers forced their way into an address in Allan Bedford Crescent, Costessey, shortly before 7am following a call from a member of the public.

The bodies of four people were found inside and police believe they were all known to each other.

Inquiries are under way to formally identify them.

A cordon is in place and forensics teams are at the scene.

The major investigation is being led by detectives from Norfolk and Suffolk forces.

He added: "I understand that news of this incident will be shocking to the local community and as soon as we can we will release more information."
