THE BODIES of two women found in a Leamington home have been identified.

Officers have named the two women as 38-year-old Lydia Gifford and 55-year-old Nina Busch.

They were discovered in the property on Binswood Street on Monday June 25 when police forced entry after concerns were raised.

The cause has not yet been confirmed but officers are not looking for anyone else in connection with the deaths.

Det Ins Liam Barry said: “Enquiries are currently ongoing but I would like to thank local people for their support with our investigation so far.

“Although we believe the incident was contained to the property, we would ask anyone who either saw or spoke to Lydia or Nina in the days leading up to their bodies being discovered to get in touch.

“In particular, we are looking for people who knew of Nina and Lydia or communicated with them between Friday 22 and Sunday 24 June to come forward.

“This is a tragic incident and specially trained officers will be supporting both Lydia and Nina’s families. Our thoughts are with the families at this difficult time and I would ask for their privacy to be respected.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101.
