Ch Insp Al Curtis, of the Humberside Police Major Crime Team, said: "Both Robert and Rose’s families continue to be supported by specially trained officers as they come to terms with their loss. My thoughts remain with them at this incredibly difficult time."Understandably, a tragic incident like this will cause shock amongst the community, and my officers continue to support local residents by conducting house to house visits to offer reassurance and engage with the community as they come to terms with what has happened."

The couple are understood to have run White Lodge Shooting School at the property,  specialising in clay pigeon shooting and corporate entertainment, for more than 30 years.
