A man and woman found dead at a house in Bradford have been named by police.

Helen Dawson, 48, of Cornwall Place, and Ivor Spratek, 40, of Sawrey Place, were pronounced dead on Sunday afternoon.

A 37-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder remains in custody, West Yorkshire Police said.

Det Ch Insp Jim Dunkerley asked for anyone who "heard or saw anything suspicious in the Sawrey Place area" at the weekend to contact police.

Local councillor Nazam Azam told BBC Look North: "It's very shocking, especially on a street like this.

"It's a quiet, good neighbourhood, most people here know each other."
