A 52-year-old man from Banbury arrested on suspicion of murder remains in police custody.

Thames Valley Police detectives have been granted more time to question the suspect, after two men were found dead at a property in Newland Road at about 6.45pm on Sunday.

Police launched a murder investigation after officers attended an address in Newland Road at around 6.45pm on Sunday.

It was later revealed it was a man in his thirties and a man in his 20s who were found dead inside the property.

The men's next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers.

Formal identification and a Home Office post mortem is yet to take place.

A scene watch is in place in Newland Road and is likely to remain there over the coming days.

A 33-year-old neighbour, who did not want to be named, said she heard police breaking down the door to the property on Sunday evening.

She said: "I heard a bang and at first I thought it was my son slamming his door."

The mother added: "I have a four-year-old, one-year-old and a newborn baby.

"This is not something you want to happen anywhere near your home, especially when you have young children."

Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Chief Inspector Craig Kirby from the Thames Valley Police Major Crime Unit, said: "We are continuing to investigate this serious incident and a scene watch remains in place on Newland Road.

"Although we are in the early stages of conducting enquiries, this is thought to have been an isolated incident. It is believed the men were known to each other.

"I would continue to appeal to anyone in the local area who may have seen or heard anything unusual around this location yesterday to please come forward.

"Anyone with any information about the incident, no matter how insignificant it may seem, should please contact the 24-hour Thames Valley Police enquiry centre on 101, quoting reference 1159 of 1 October."

Deputy Local Police Area Commander, Chief Inspector Emma Garside, said: "Officers will be conducting enquiries within the area over the coming days as part of the investigation, and if anyone has any concerns, please speak to a local neighbourhood officer.

"Our thoughts are with the men's family at this difficult time."
