A priest at a Leeds church was found murdered at her home hours before police discovered the body of her husband at a North Yorkshire beauty spot.

The body of the Rev Susan Lancaster, 67, a mother-of-two known locally as Louise, was found on Thursday at her semi-detached property in Talbot Avenue in Roundhay.

Officers from West Yorkshire Police went to the property after their counterparts in North Yorkshire were contacted by a man, understood to be her husband Roy Lancaster, 54, saying he had killed his wife.
