Speaking after the incident on Sunday, Detective Superintendent Richard Vandenbergh of the East Area Command unit said: “This is a truly shocking incident that has left one woman dead and a second with serious injuries and will understandably cause concern within the local community.
“A man has been arrested and remains in custody and it appears this was an isolated incident confined to a single address.
“Residents will have woken up this morning to find a large police presence in the area.
“I want to reassure people that this is standard practice when dealing with such a serious incident so specialist officers can gather evidence as quickly and securely as is possible.
