A man and a woman have been found dead in a suspected murder-suicide in Ipswich.

Suffolk Police said officers were called by the ambulance service to reports that a man had suffered serious injuries after apparently falling from a flat in Siloam Place. He died shortly after the arrival of emergency services and his death is being treated as unexplained. Police said his death is not thought to be suspicious.

A woman's body was then found inside the property and her death is being treated as suspicious. Officers, who were called to the scene just after 8.50am on Monday, are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident.

"This would appear to be a tragic incident involving two people known to each other and we are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident at this time.

"As such there is no threat to the wider community, but I would appeal to anyone with any information about these deaths to make contact with our officers.
