The house where a couple were both found dead with 'severe injuries' is a women's refuge, according to neighbours.

Police found a man and a woman who had both died from serious injuries after they were called to a property in Moseley, Birmingham, at 5.30pm yesterday.

The pair, who were both 28 years old, had suffered serious injuries and were pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say they were known to each other but did not live at the same address.

Today neighbours have said the block of flats where the man and woman were found is run by Trident Reach, a charity offering a domestic abuse support service in Birmingham.

Neighbour Abba Khan Amedi, 73, a retired auditor, said: "It’s a hostel for women."
