Yesterday, Detective Superintendent Iestyn Davies of the North Wales Police said: "Like routines in such circumstances, forensic examinations are underway and home-to-house investigations are underway.

"We are not sure at this stage of the cause of death but at this time I am satisfied that we do not consider the involvement of third parties in death and there is no risk to the public.

"The closest family has been notified."

People have expressed their surprise on social media following the news of the couple's death.
