A 25-year-old man was last night being questioned on suspicion of murder after the bodies of a mother and daughter were discovered in a house.

Neighbours said a four-year-old boy was taken from the property, unharmed but crying and wrapped in a blanket.

The bodies were found by an adult relative at an address on Ironside Road in Sheffield in Britain at around 7.40am yesterday, South Yorkshire police said.

The two victims have not been officially named but are understood to be Tracy Donnelly (42) and her daughter Louise Donnelly (23).

A police spokesman said officers believed it was a domestic incident and the local community were not in any danger.
