Detective Superintendent Simon Atkinson, from West Yorkshire Police’s Protective Services, said:

This is clearly a significant incident and our investigation will be thorough as we piece together the events that have led to the deaths of a local family.The investigation is at an early stage, and while I do not want to speculate around the circumstances leading to the deaths, I am happy to confirm that we are not looking for anyone else in connection with this incident.

Damien Miller, Superintendent Operations of Bradford District, who leads neighbourhood policing across the Bradford District, described Clayton as a “close knit community”

He said local people will be understandably upset by what has taken place and that he wanted to reassure people there is “no wider danger to members of the public”.
