Police investigating the discovery of two bodies in the same block of flats have said there is a "strong possibility" the deaths were linked.

Officers broke into the flat after his employers at Darleys Restaurant in the city contacted them when he failed to show up for work. During inquiries on Friday morning, the body of a second man in his 50s was found in a flat in the same building.
Assistant Chief Constable Steve Cotterill said: "There is a strong possibility the two deaths are linked."
