POLICE investigations are continuing after a man and a woman were found dead in a Bognor Regis flat.

A spokesman for Sussex Police said more information should be released today (Monday, July 15), after post-mortems have been completed.

Officers were called to the basement flat at around 3.40pm on Friday, July 12 when the bodies of a man, 51, and a woman, 30 were discovered.

An eye witness, who lives in Park Road, said he saw about seven cars pull up outside the house in the afternoon, with police officers and a hazardous response team attending the scene.

A spokesman for Sussex Police said the deaths are currently being treated as unexplained and at this stage, not suspicious.

Officers said there was a concern there was an indication of chemical substances related to one or other of the bodies.

The property has been rechecked and Sussex Police said there is no evidence of noxious substances or pollution.

No one else was evacuated from the property.
