Inquiry after two bodies found in Peterborough

Police are linking the deaths of two men whose bodies were found at separate locations in Peterborough.

A man in his 30s was found dead when police were called to a house in Orton Goldhay at about 04:00 BST on Sunday.

The body of a man in his 60s was found in the grounds of the city crematorium at about 08:30 BST. His death is not being treated as suspicious.
