Mystery surrounds the death of an elderly woman who was found in the same property as a man who had suffered multiple injuries, according to police.

Thames Valley Police say they are treating the death of the woman, who was found at the address in Berkeley Road, Newbury, Berkshire, on Sunday morning as unexplained.

The woman, in her 80s, was declared dead at the scene by paramedics.

A man, in his 90s, was also found in the property, suffering from injuries to his head, ribs and shoulder.

He was taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, where he is being treated for his injuries.

Detective Chief Inspector Gill Wootton said: "Both the man and woman were found in the property in Berkeley Road and early indications suggest there were no signs of a forced entry.

"We are still investigating this incident and are yet to determine the circumstances of the woman's death and the man's injuries."
