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.
