According to the Nottingham Post, a woman in her 40s and her teenage daughter had been living at the address.

One neighbour said they had not been seen for around three months.

Nottinghamshire Police said officers were called at 11.04am on Tuesday after concerns were raised for the welfare of the occupants of a property in Radford

A cordon is in place at the address in Hartley Road and people in white forensic suits have been spottted at the scene as the investigation into the deaths continues.

Neighbour Debra Williams said she last saw the pair in February, but didn't think this was unusual as they would often be away for months from time to time.

She said: "I noticed that a video I took of the back of my house from February to report fly tipping to the council also showed their house and you could see the windows open then."

My pictures show the windows last being closed around February 9. It's a crying shame."

Another neighbour, who wished to remain anonymous, said: "It’s very sad, I’m at a loss for words. I’ve tried finding out online what exactly happened but couldn’t find anything. It’s so sad."

Detective Chief Inspector Ruby Burrow said: "Whilst we don't believe there to be an immediate risk to the public, we are keeping an open mind into what has happened at this address and will be working hard over the next few days to establish how and when these two women lost their lives.

"In the meantime my thoughts - and those of every other officer involved in this investigation - are with those who have died, their family and friends."
