Her husband and two children were also found dead in Birling Gap, East Sussex A woman in her forties has been found dead with stab wounds at home in Twickenham and her husband and two children found dead below cliffs in Eastbourne, Sussex. The 47-year-old mother-of-two was found by police shortly before 6pm last night after concerns were raised for her family’s safety.  “I haven’t really seen them, I saw Christmas lights go up but that is about it, they were a very quiet family.”A bus driver, who refused to be named, said he saw the family coming out the driveway occasionally.He said: “It is a shock, they were very nice people, pleasant.”I saw them quite a few times and you could just tell they were very nice.”A former owner of the home confirmed the house was sold in 2014 and is believed to have been rented out to the family.Anyone with information is asked to call the Metropolitan Police on 0208 721 4005, or locally to Sussex Police on 101 quoting Operation Glasson. The  Metropolitan Police said the body of a man and two children found an hour earlier at the Birling Gap seafront, Eastbourne, were believed to be her husband, 57, and sons, age seven and 10. A vehicle was recovered nearby. No arrests have been made and police said that at this stage they were not looking for anyone else in connection with the investigation. Neighbour Alycia Mead, 25, said: “It was about 6pm and I saw lots of flashing lights and two fire engines parked on the road.”Then about six police cars, some unmarked, came and the officers were smashing their way through the front door.”They were struggling but managed to smash through some of the windows and climbed in through the door and then I heard them say ‘she is on her own’.”They were picking their way through the garden and the shed and when I saw forensics last night I thought it must have been murder.last_img
