A full hearing into the death of the mother and daughter will be held at a later date

A mum and daughter were found dead in their home after not being seen for three months.

The bodies of Beryl and Joyce Sheen were discovered by police officers after the alarm was raised last Monday.

The pair were known by neighbours in Sturry, near Canterbury, Kent, to be reclusive, but concerns grew about their welfare after they were not seen since May.

Officers arrived to find Beryl, 63, lying on a sofa, while Joyce, 91, was on the floor.

Both were in a state of advanced decomposition.

A pathologist was unable to determine the cause of their deaths.

A spokeswoman for Kent Police said the deaths were being treated as "unexplained" and "not suspicious".

She said: "Kent Police officers attended an address in Staines Hill, Sturry at 11.17am on August 6 where the bodies of two women were discovered.

"Officers are currently treating the deaths as unexplained and a report is being compiled for the coroner.

"The women were aged in their 60s and 90s."

An inquest was opened and adjourned on Thursday at Archbishop's Palace in Maidstone.

A full hearing will take place at a later date.
