Borough councillor Gareth Lewis says news that an adult and child have been found dead in Merthyr Tydfil will have a 'big impact' on people locally.
Police were called to an address in Church Street in the village of Troedyrhiw at 4.20pm this afternoon.
– Councillor Gareth Lewis
It is a very close-knit community, the people are very nice and will help the police as much as possible with their inquiry.
The information started to spread online, and it will have a big impact on this community and its people.
Troedyrhiw is part of an old coal-mining area, which Mr Lewis described as a 'typical, traditional Valleys community'.
