A woman, 60, was found dead inside her caravan.

Detectives are questioning a man over the killings, but no charges have yet been laid.

The two victims were known to each other, but it’s unclear if they knew their attacker.

Police have seized a weapon. It’s not a gun, but officers haven’t said what it is.

Detective Inspector Darrin Shadlow believes the pair was attacked between 3.30pm and 4.40pm on Thursday.

“We are appealing for anyone who may have noticed or heard something or seen anyone suspicious to contact us,” he said.
