A teenage girl and a woman have been found dead at a property in the New Forest national park.

The bodies of the 17-year-old girl and the 42-year-old woman were found just before 2pm last Thursday in Hampshire, police confirmed.

The two women were said to have been related to each other, with police adding their deaths were being treated as “unexplained but not suspicious”.

The property they were found at is near the entrance of Shorefield Country Park - a 'luxury' New Forest holiday park with lodges and a spa.

The location is close to Milford on Sea in the New Forest.

A spokesman for Hampshire Constabulary said: "We were called just after 1.45pm on Thursday December 29 to a report of the bodies of a 17-year-old girl and 42-year-old woman having been found at an address in Shorefield Road, Downton.

"The deaths are being treated as unexplained, but not suspicious.

"Their family has been informed and a file will be prepared for the coroner."
