Floral tributes have been left at a house in Radford where two bodies were found by police. The bodies, believed to be those of a mother and daughter, were discovered at the address in Hartley Road on Tuesday morning (May 21).

Nottinghamshire Police said the deaths were not being treated as suspicious. The two occupants were tenants of a council house and neighbours told Nottinghamshire Live they had not seen the pair for at least three weeks.

Officers remained guarding the house on Thursday (May 23) with bouquets of flowers left and messages paying tribute.

The bodies are thought to have lain undiscovered for some time. Police said there was no wider risk to the public and some neighbours said the pair hadn't been seen for about three weeks.

The daughter was said to have had additional needs and been reliant on her mother. Speaking previously, Detective Chief Inspector Ruby Burrow said: "This is a tragic case and we are currently working to understand exactly how and when these people died. Whilst our investigation remains at an early stage, we do not currently believe what happened to be suspicious.

"We have enlisted the help of a forensic pathologist and will be in a better position to determine what has happened once they conclude their report."
