TOXICOLOGY tests on heroin found at an address in Suffolk where two people died have revealed it was “normal strength with no unusual additives”.

The bodies of a 28-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman were found at a home in London Road South, Lowestoft, at 11.30am on Thursday.

Police are not treating the deaths as suspicious but because there was evidence of drug-taking within the room, they say it is possible the victims could have overdosed.

It was not initially clear whether the strength or purity of the dose was responsible for the deaths, but officers said there was nothing untoward about it.
