An investigation's underway after the bodies of two women were found at a house in Macclesfield.

The women, believed to be 34-year-old Rachel Clayton and 30-year-old Emma Speed, were found in Crompton Road on Sunday night.

It's thought the alarm was raised by a friend of the women.

Not long after, Cheshire Fire Service and gas engineers turned up to check for a leak but there was no indication of any gas escaping.

Post-mortem examinations were due to take place to work out the cause of their deaths.

Police, however, say they're not looking for anybody else in connection.

A spokeswoman said: "Cheshire Police is currently investigating the deaths of two women at a house in Macclesfield.

"Officers were called to Crompton Road at 8.24pm on Sunday where the bodies of two women, believed to be Rachel Clayton, 34, and Emma Speed, 30, were discovered.

"Formal identification has not yet taken place.

"The deaths are being treated as unexplained but at this stage there is not believed to be any third party involvement.

"Inquiries are ongoing.''
