    I lived in the S9 area some years ago now and I'm so shocked and upset to have heard about this awful incident. Rest in peace to the two boys who are no longer with us and my deepest sympathies go out to the other children and their family members and friends.

    Two boys dead as police swoop on house

    Two boys have died and four other children - including a seven-month-old baby - are in hospital after police swooped on a house in Sheffield.

    A man, 37, and a woman, 34, arrested on suspicion of murder remain in custody as officers attempt to establish how the pair, aged 13 and 14, died.

    The other children - aged 11, 10, three and seven months - remain in hospital but are conscious, police said.

    A cordon remains in place outside the home in the Shiregreen area.

    South Yorkshire Police received "reports of concerns for safety" of those inside the address at 07:30 BST on Friday.

    Aaron Brunskill, who lives locally, said residents came out into the street at 08:00 to find about 15 police cars and four ambulances.

    He said: "I know there's children there, I've just seen them walking back to the shops and that's all I know.

    "Everyone speaking on the road said the first one out had to be resuscitated."

    :eek: so it wasn't the parents of the children that were arrested in the home?:eek:


    Supt Paul McCurry said the force was providing support to the kids’ relatives, as well as officers who responded to the 999 call.

    Local MP Gill Furniss said the community had been “deeply shaken”.

    She added: “My deepest sympathies are with the loved ones of the children.”

    Iirc, an earlier article only said LE wouldnt comment on the relation of the arrested adults/kids, leading me to believe they are related to some of the victims. Maybe a blended family. Moo

    That doesn't mean it's not the parents though.
    In a newspaper article I read this morning it said the woman in the house is thought to be the mother. Nothing about the man.

    It doesn't look like evidence bags to me, I think they're usually sealed brown bags/envelopes. I think it could be forensics processing supplies.

    Interesting how it describes the children as 'rescued'. I just noticed that on an article from the BBC and it came from a quote from police.


    House 'rescue' children leave hospital

    Makes it sound like the police interrupted whatever was going on in the house and it could have been a lot worse. Really heartbreaking.

    So curious about the “serious incident”. We’re they cooking meth & had a house filled with toxic fumes?

    He really would be best off staying off social media right now, some awful rumours online.

    I can see why he is retaliating but he would preserve his sanity more by keeping well away.
