A neighbour wo lives on the same street, and did not wish to be named, said: “I did not hear anything at all last night, sometimes I stay up playing games but I was sleeping.

“I tried to ask the police what was going on but they couldn’t tell me, they just told me something had happened at the house and that I’d see it on the news.

“There were quite a lot of vans around on the street earlier.

“The vans have only just left at about 2pm.”

Another neighbour added: “This is usually a quiet street so I’m not sure what has gone on”.
