Two teenagers have died and four are in hospital after a "serious incident" at a home in Sheffield, police said.

Two boys have died following an incident in Sheffield which has left four other children in hospital.

Police said the teenagers, aged 13 and 14, died after they were taken to hospital on Friday morning.

Police confirmed they have arrested a 37-year-old woman and a 34-year-old woman on suspicion of murder.

South Yorkshire Police said were called to "reports of concerns for safety" at a property in Gregg House Road, Shiregreen, at 7:30 on Friday morning.

Local resident Aaron Brunskill said neighbours came out into the street at about 8am to find around 15 police cars and four ambulances.

He said: "The police weren't telling us anything. I know there's children there. I've just seen them walking back to the shops and that's all I know."

Mr Brunskill added: "There were four ambulances. Everyone got took away in an ambulance. I don't know if the air ambulance was used."

An air ambulance landed in the playground of nearby Hartley Brook Primary Academy, with paramedics from the Yorkshire Ambulance Service.

Emergency services confirmed six children were taken to hospital.

A force spokesperson said: "There will be a significant police presence at the scene throughout the day as officers continue inquiries."

A cordon is in place and buses are being diverted from the area.

Police have not said the exact nature of the incident but that it is "ongoing".
