Two women have been killed after a reported stabbing in West Sussex - as a man was arrested on suspicion of murder.
Emergency services were called to a house on Hazel Way in Crawley Down at 10.18am and found the two women outside and a man seriously injured inside.
Reports suggested a knife was involved in the attack which has been described as a "major incident".
Sussex Police said it was an isolated incident in the village with no further risk to the public.
The badly hurt man was taken by ambulance to the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton.
Photos from the scene showed a large police presence and a white sheet in Hazel Way covering what appeared to be a body.
There was also a pair of what seemed like forensic tents in the road.
Detective Chief Inspector Alex Geldart, of the Sussex and Surrey major crime team, who is leading the murder investigation, said: "At this time we believe this to be an isolated incident, with no ongoing risk to members of the public.
"This is a fast-moving investigation which will see significant police resources deployed to the scene for the foreseeable future.
"We are grateful for the support and patience of the local community while we conduct our enquiries."
DCI Geldart added: " My thoughts are very much with the friends and family of the two women who have sadly lost their lives."
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to report online or call 101, quoting Operation Deanland.
