Devon and Cornwall Police are investigating the deaths of two pensioners in St Austell.

Officers were scrambled to a house on Eastbourne Road after 9.30am on Friday, where they found the bodies of a man and a woman in their eighties.

Their deaths are not being treated as unexplained.

Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service has ruled out carbon monoxide poisoning.

Police said: "Police were called to a property on Eastbourne Road in St Austell at around 9.30am Friday morning (10 May) after reports of a sudden death.

 
"Police, fire crews and an ambulance service were all in attendance and the bodies of two people, a man and a woman were found in the property.  Initially it was thought that carbon monoxide could have been the cause of death but fire investigators have ruled this out.
 
"Following an examination of the scene police are not treating either death as suspicious at this time and are now carrying out an investigation on behalf of the Coroner.  
 
"Both deceased were in their eighties and officers are currently contacting the next of kin."
