Two people have been arrested on suspicion of murder after a man was found shot dead at a property.

The suspects, a man in his 70s and a woman in her 50s, were held following the fatal shooting near the Colnbrook bypass, Slough, Berkshire, just before 3.30am on Monday.

Emergency services teams, including armed officers, who responded to the reports found a man in his 40s who was declared dead at the scene.

Detective Chief Superintendent Chris Ward, of Thames Valley Police, said investigators were treating the shooting as an "isolated incident" as he tried to reassure locals.

Mr Ward said: "I must stress that this incident is not being treated as related to terrorism and there is no threat to the wider public."

He appealed to anyone who saw or heard anything unusual in the area in the early hours of the morning to call Thames Valley Police officers on 101.
