One neighbour, who did not want to be named, described the couple as ‘affable and kind’ people.

He said: ‘I had a few phone calls from the police this morning (yesterday).

‘They were asking when was the last time I’d spoken with my neighbours. 

‘Well, it must’ve been two or three weeks. Our paths didn’t cross much.

‘I was told they’d both been found dead. They think it’s natural causes and that they’d been there a while. It’s just really sad.

‘You think, when this type of thing happens, that you could have done more.’
