A father and daughter have been found dead at a house in south-east London.

The bodies of Noel Brown, 69, and his 41-year-old daughter Marie Brown were discovered at the property in New Butt Lane, Lewisham, at about 02:45 GMT.

Police suggested Mr Brown, who "frequently used local betting shops", may have been involved with "people with whom he didn't normally associate" in the weeks before his death.

A murder investigation has been launched. No arrests have been made.
