Two women were found stabbed to death at a house in army married quarters at Aldershot yesterday, several hours after police visited the property to investigate reports of a domestic incident but left after finding the house "in darkness and secure". The bodies were found two hours after police discovered the body of the husband of one of the women - a corporal in the 2nd Battalion, Paratroop Regiment - who had apparently fallen to his death from a multi-storey car park in the town.

After identifying the soldier, police forced their way into his house on the nearby Goose Green estate and found the bodies of his wife and her friend. Police initially visited the house at around 2.50am yesterday but left when they found the house unlit and quiet. A spokeswoman said it was "common policy" to leave if there did not appear to be a disturbance, because of the possibility that the initial report had been malicious. No one else is being sought in connection with the inquiry. Jojo Moyes
