West Norfolk communities in shock as murder investigations continue
Two West Norfolk communities have been rocked today after murder investigations were launched into separate deaths.
And another man was arrested after a young woman died following an incident in Leete Way, West Winch. Police have stressed the deaths are not connected.
Neighbours this morning expressed their shock at the incidents, as police continued their investigations at both sites.
In Downham, one nearby resident said it looked as if "the entire Norfolk Constabulary" was in the area.
She said: "It's ever so quiet round here normally.
"We were sitting there and there were all these flashing lights. We thought it must have been an accident and they just kept coming and coming. I've never seen anything like it.
"I've lived here 17 years since these houses were new. We all get on ever so well and look out for each other."
Another woman, who was walking to school with her children said it was "absolutely shocking".
She added: "It's normally such a lovely area."
Meanwhile, in West Winch, a resident said it was a "normal, quiet area." Several other residents declined to comment.
Anyone who has information about either death is asked to contact Norfolk Police on 101, quoting incident number 361 of January 23 for the West Winch inquiry or 377 for the Downham investigation.
