'Mum and 10-year-old son' found dead inside flat after fears for their safety

Two people, thought to be a mother and her son, have been found dead in a Yorkshire home.

The woman and a child were discovered at around 9pm on Thursday evening in Leeds.

Their identities have not been confirmed but the pair are believed to be aged roughly 30 and 10.

Their bodies were found after police were called to the address in Holbeck, Leeds, by someone with welfare concerns for the occupants.

West Yorkshire Police said after being called to the scene that they are not looking for anyone else following the incident.

A police spokesman said: ‘While inquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances of their deaths, officers are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident.

‘Formal identification has yet to be completed.’

Pictures from the scene show police tape cordoning off a suburban house.

It is unclear how long the pair were dead for.
