NEIGHBOURS have spoken of their shock after a man and woman were found dead in a flat.

Police were called to the basement flat in Bognor Regis on Friday evening when the bodies of a man, 51, and a woman, 30, were discovered.

A spokesman for Sussex Police said the deaths are being treated as unexplained and at this stage, not suspicious.

Officers said there was a concern there could be chemical substances related to one or other of the bodies, but the property was checked and there is no evidence of noxious substances.

One neighbour who lives two floors above the basement flat in Park Road, and did not want to be named, said: ‘It’s absolutely shocking.

‘We didn’t know who they were as we go in through different doors.

‘It’s so sad.’
