Staffordshire Police said a man, aged 27, was arrested at the scene. His relationship to the woman and girls has not been confirmed.

Chief Superintendent Martin Evans said: “Our investigation into this terrible incident continues. We must stress the need for the public and media to refrain from speculating.

Detectives are working hard to understand how these lives came to be lost. We understand the shock and sadness neighbours and local residents are feeling. We need time and some patience to establish the facts. The level of detail of the examination at the house is vital to piecing together what happened. This work will include support from a forensic pathologist.”

CS Evans said officers would also be speaking to neighbours, family and friends as part of their investigation. Members of Ms Galikowska’s family are being supported by family liaison officers.

A police spokesperson said “Local officers and police community support officers remain in the area providing reassurance to the community who are understandably shocked by this tragic incident,”
