Police do not believe there is any third-party involvement in the deaths of two people following a series of explosions at a bungalow just outside Newmarket.

Today structural engineers are working to make a bungalow in Lidgate's The Street safe for fire and police investigators to enter after 'multiple explosions' destroyed the detached property yesterday.

Last night Suffolk Police confirmed two people, believed to be mother and daughter, died in the suspected gas explosion.

Once the building has been made safe a search and recovery process will start and police and fire investigators will work to establish the cause of the explosion.

A police spokesman said the deaths remain unexplained, but at this time the force did not believe there is any third party involvement.

A road closure remains in place at the junction with the B1063.

Anyone with information about the incident should contact Suffolk Police on 101 quoting reference CAD 122 of 7 May.
