The bodies of two men have been found in a car that had warnings about dangerous chemicals pasted on the outside.

Humberside Police said the car was parked along a river bank on Booth Nooking Lane at Winteringham, North Lincolnshire, on Friday morning.

Police, firefighters and paramedics were called to the scene where both men were found to be dead.

The identity of the men has not yet been established by officers.

In a statement Humberside Police said: "We initially attended the scene and found a red coloured car containing two adult men who showed no apparent sign of life.

"On the outside of the car there were signs warning people not to enter due to potentially harmful chemicals within.

"This prompted a chemical safety response from police, ambulance service and Humberside Fire and Rescue in order to secure the area and the vehicle with a view to safely entering the vehicle to recover the two men from within.

"Sadly the men were found to be deceased when assessed by paramedics.

"An investigation into the incident is now under way as police work to identify the two men and establish the circumstances which led to this incident taking place."
