Police looking into a car wash fight stumbled into a double murder scene – woman arrested


Police investigating a fight in a car wash uncovered a double murder scene after going to a house to arrest a suspect.

Officers were first called to the car wash on Campbell Road in Stoke-on-Trent at 2:04pm today following reports of an assault involving a man and a woman.

A man in his 40s was sent to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries as part of the fight.

When they turned up on Flax Street to arrest a woman in connection with the fight, they found two unresponsive bodies – both of whom were injured.

Despite efforts by paramedics both victims tragically died at the scene.

Their family have been informed and are being supported by trained officers.

Police then arrested a 49-year-old woman on suspicion of murder following the harrowing discovery.

Detective Superintendent Nicki Addison said: ‘This is a tragic case and we are working hard to understand more about what happened leading up to these two people losing their lives.

‘We ask that people do not speculate on the circumstances at this stage as it is distressing for family and friends, and could hinder our enquiries.

‘We understand that this incident may cause concern in the local community and further afield. We know that the woman arrested is related to the people and we don’t believe there is wider threat to the public at this time.

‘Cordons are currently in place at a home on Flax Street and at a car wash on Campbell Road.
