POLICE have launched a murder investigation after two young women were found dead in a flat in Wakefield.

The bodies of Kimberley Frank, 17, and Samantha Sykes, 18, were discovered at Barden Road on Saturday.

A post mortem carried out yesterday revealed they had died from stab wounds.

Their bodies were found after West Yorkshire Police were contacted by Kent Police at 4.47am on Saturday following concerns for the women’s safety from a 19-year-old woman in Dover.

Three people were arrested on suspicion of murder. A 19-year-old woman and a 23-year-old man were released without charge. A 19-year-old man was last night still in custody.
