Second Pensioner Dies In Newbury 'Mystery'

A second pensioner has died after suffering multiple injuries in a house where an elderly woman was found dead.

Thames Valley Police said they are treating the death of the 94-year-old man as "unexplained".

He had been taken to John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, with injuries to his head, ribs and shoulder but died overnight.

Officers are also yet to establish how an 89-year-old woman found at the same property in Berkeley Road in Newbury, Berkshire, died. She was declared dead at the scene by paramedics.

Earlier, Detective Chief Inspector Gill Wooton said there were no signs of a forced entry.

He added: "We are continuing to treat both of these deaths as unexplained until the post-mortem results are known.

"We are yet to determine fully the circumstances which led to these people's deaths and will keep an open mind until all forensic tests and investigative searches are carried out on the property where they were found."

Post-mortems into the deaths of both pensioners are expected to take place later.

Anyone with information that might help officers with their investigation is asked to contact the 24-hour police enquiry centre on 101.
