The pair, who were pronounced dead at the scene, were discovered in Fox Crescent, Chelmsford, Essex, just after 11:00 GMT.

Essex Police said the deaths were being treated as unexplained and a cordon had been put in place due to a "potential noxious substance inside the car".

The scene was declared safe after checks, a police spokesman said.
