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.
