The bodies of Mary and Anthony Jenkins, both 77, were discovered by police on Tuesday morning.

Their deaths are being treated as "unexplained" by police who were called to their property on Ynyswen Road.

It's a real shame and so sad. Everyone here is so shocked, they were well liked.

Mary was often out and about but her husband was quieter. The first I knew about it was seeing that there were police outside.

– Neighbour Bryant Keddie

Police were still at the scene on Wednesday.

DCI Mark Lewis, from South Wales Police, said: "The cause of their deaths has not yet been established and we are investigating the circumstances at present. At this time the deaths are being treated as unexplained."
