An elderly man killed his wife at their home before taking his own life, Cumbria Police have said.

The bodies of the 92-year-old man and 89-year-old woman were found by their son and daughter-in law at a house in Mint Dale, Kendal, on Friday evening.

Post-mortem examinations took place on Saturday to establish the cause of death.

Police are yet to formally identify the pair. Inquiries into the circumstances surrounding the deaths continue.
