Staffordshire Police is appealing for information following the deaths of two men that could potentially be linked.

Officers were initially called to reports of a body found near the allotments by Leonora Street, Stoke-on-Trent at around 1:20pm this afternoon (11 October).

As officers made enquiries nearby, a second body was also discovered at an address in Barnfield Road, Stoke-on-Trent at around 3:50pm.

Next of kin have now been informed as both deaths appear to be linked and specially-trained officers are providing support at this difficult time. The deaths are being treated as unexplained at this time, but detectives are working alongside forensics teams to establish the series of events.

Detective Chief Inspector Jason Everett, senior investigating officer for Staffordshire Police, said: "We do not believe there is any ongoing threat or risk to any member of the public and we would ask for everyone to remain calm. We will maintain a scene at Barnfield Road overnight and neighbourhood officers are completing door-to-door enquiries to gather information and provide reassurance to the local community. If you do know anything about either incident or have seen anyone acting suspiciously in the area in the last day or so, please contact 101 quoting incident number 378 of 11 October. In addition if you have outwardly-facing CCTV or dashcam footage in the neighbourhood, please get in touch."
