Formal identification of the remains of two people who perished in an explosion and fire in Lidgate is still to take place, according to Suffolk Police.

Emergency services were called to a secluded bungalow in The Street to reports of 'multiple explosions' at the property on Tuesday.

The bungalow was destroyed in a suspected gas blast killing two people.

The victims have been identified locally as a mother and her 50-year-old daughter.

Suffolk Police said today that formal identification has not yet taken place and Home Office post-mortem examinations were to be carried out tomorrow.

Police and fire investigators have finished working at the property, but the investigation is ongoing.

The deaths remain unexplained at this time, but detectives do not currently believe there was anybody else involved.

A Suffolk Police spokesman said: "Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Suffolk Police on 101 quoting reference CAD 122 of May 7."
