Three children found dead in Suffolk house
The infants are believed to be aged three, two and eleven months.

POLICE IN THE UK have launched a “large investigation” following the discovery of the bodies of three young children at a house in Suffolk today.

The children are believed to be aged three, two and eleven months.

Officers attended the property on London Road South in Lowestoft as they probed the death of a woman in her 20s earlier this morning. She had been found on Gordon Road suffering with severe head injuries. It is believed that she fell from a car park.

Ambulance and air ambulance crew members attended to her but she was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said their enquiries led them to the house where the children were found.

Their deaths are being treated as suspicious. Post-mortem examinations are due to be carried out this evening and tomorrow at James Paget Hospital at Gorleston.

The victims are yet to be identified but it is understood the deceased woman is their mother.

“We are in the early stages of a large investigation into what has happened, it is too early to be able to come up with a definitive explanation and we will be keeping an open mind,” said Detective Superintendent John Brocklebank from the Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team.

“However from our initial enquiries we do not believe there is any threat to the wider community.

“Our priorities now are to establish the circumstances behind the woman’s death and how it maybe related to the deaths of the three children.”

Police are appealing for anyone who has information that may help the investigation to contact them.
