A father has paid a heartbreaking tribute to his two children who are believed to have been found dead in a house in Derbyshire.

Four people were found dead at the home on Chandos Crescent in Killamarsh, near Sheffield, at about 7.25am on Sunday.

Derbyshire Police, which has launched a murder investigation, said a man is in police custody and they are not looking for anyone else in connection with the deaths.

Jason Bennett, from Sheffield, said the bodies of his son John and daughter Lacey were discovered at the house, along with their mother and a friend of Lacey’s.

Mr Bennett wrote on Facebook: “Absolutely broken my heart into a million pieces.

“I’m writing this as I’m lost and broken on a four-hour drive back home having just received heartbreaking news that my beautiful boy John and beautiful daughter Lacey have been taken away from me.

“Life will never be the same. I love you both more than anything. I wish I could hold you and kiss you and tell you how much I love you. Thank you for making my world.

“I need my babies back. My angels.”

At the scene on Monday, the father of two children found dead in the house said he is “heartbroken” and “shattered”.

He collapsed in tears as he laid flowers at the police cordon around the property. He stayed at the scene for more than half an hour.

Asked about his feelings as left, he said: “Heartbroken, million pieces, shattered.”

It is understood three of those who died were children – two siblings and a friend. The fourth person was a woman.
