Thames Valley Police has launched an investigation into an unexplained death - after the discovery of an elderly woman’s body at an address in Newbury yesterday morning.
Police were called to the property in Berkeley Road just before 10am, where they discovered the body of a woman in her eighties.
She was declared dead at the scene by paramedics.
A man, in his nineties, was also found in the property, suffering from injuries to his head, ribs and shoulder. He was taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, where he is being treated.
Det Chief Insp Gill Wootton said: "Both the man and woman were found in the property in Berkeley Road and early indications suggest there were no signs of a forced entry.
"We are still investigating this incident and are yet to determine the circumstances of the woman’s death and the man’s injuries. Anyone with any information is asked to contact us on 101."
