Detectives are investigating the deaths of an uncle and niece at a caravan park.

Officers were called to Old Mill Lane in Forest Town, near Mansfield, just after 10pm on Tuesday 28 August.

Paramedics treated Richard Thompson, 66, and his niece Lisa Butler, 48, for their injuries, but the pair died a short time later.
