Police are investigating after a man and a woman were found dead at two locations in Gloucestershire on Wednesday morning.

Emergency services were called to Sherborne Place in Cheltenham at 6.25am where the body of a man was discovered.

The body of a woman was found a short time later at an address in the village of Bourton-on-the-Water, which is about 15 miles from Cheltenham.
