"Following enquiries the deaths are not being treated as suspicious and a file has been passed to the coroner."

Whilst officers were investigating, a police car parked at the scene had its passenger window smashed.

Lancashire Police said a suspect has been arrested for the "mindless act" which led to the vehicle being taken off patrol for repairs.

The police spokesman added: "A police vehicle has been damaged whilst an officer was dealing with the incident in Meeting House Lane in Lancaster.

"This mindless act has resulted in a needed resource being off the road.

"Fortunately a member of the public reported the incident and a detailed description enabled a suspect to be arrested.

"We ask that further witnesses come forward and contact Lancs Police on 101 and quote log number LC-20201113-1305."
