Officers and paramedics were called to the home shortly after 9.30am on Sunday where both individuals were found unresponsive with knife wounds and pronounced dead at the scene.

A 52-year-old man was arrested in Cambridgeshire shortly afterwards on suspicion of murder.

He remains in custody and officers have said they are not looking for any other suspects at this time. The man is believed to be known to the father and daughter.

Detective Chief Inspector Claire Hine, who is leading the investigation, said she was confident that there was no risk to neighbours or members of the public in that area.

She said officers were supporting the family of the deceased after their "unimaginable loss".

"This incident has taken the lives of a father and daughter. Our thoughts are with their loved ones as they come to terms with such an unimaginable loss," she said.

"We are providing and will continue to provide them with whatever support we can.

"We believe that the victims and the man in custody were known to each other and while the investigation is still in its early stages, I am confident that we are not looking for additional suspects and that there is no continuing risk to members of the public in the area.

"I would ask anyone who heard anything unusual or witnessed any suspicious behaviour in the vicinity of Mayes Road, either this weekend or at another time, to contact the police.

"Information that helps us to build a picture of what has taken place in this case could be very important."
