Police and paramedics were called to the Hunt family home on Ashlyn Close in Bushey on Tuesday evening.

They attended following reports that three women had been found with serious injuries - the wife and two children of horse racing commentator John Hunt.

Despite the efforts of paramedics, all three died at the scene.

Police are now hunting for 26-year-old Kyle Clifford, who is believed to be an ex-boyfriend of Mr Hunt's 25-year-old daughter, Louise.

She was discovered with her sister, Hannah, 28, and mother Carol.

Just days before the incident Louise had shared a tweet praising "women who leave" for having the "strength" to choose themselves.

Louise ran a dog grooming business out of their home.

A customer posted a tribute on the firm’s Facebook page. Caren Barnett wrote: “No words can describe the loss I feel after today’s horrific news.

"You were so loved and Scooby adored you… you built up an amazing business and were always so kind and gentle. May you RIP with your sister and mum xxx”

Hertfordshire police and crime commissioner Jonathan Ash-Edwards said: "My thoughts are with the family and friends of the women who have been shockingly killed in this terrible incident in Bushey.

"It will no doubt send shockwaves through the local community and across Hertfordshire.

"I am being kept updated by the police and I urge the public to support the police with any information about the whereabouts of the named suspect."

"We have extensive police resources deployed to various locations in north London and also the Bushey area.
