A mother and a her two-month-old baby who were found dead at a house in Brentwood have been formally named by police.

Nadine Loveman, 36, and her son Steven Loveman, both of Wellesley Road, were found dead at a property in the road last Sunday afternoon, Essex Police said today.

Police and the ambulance service had been called at around 3.20pm on Sunday with concerns for their welfare. They were pronounced dead at the scene.

Forensic post mortem examinations have been completed but were inconclusive. Further tests will now be carried out.

The deaths continue to be treated as unexplained. Enquiries are ongoing to establish the sequence of events that led to their deaths.

Senior Investigating Officer Detective Inspector Stuart Truss said: “This is a clearly distressing incident for all involved.

“We are working closely with Nadine and Steven’s family in order to try and establish what may have happened over that weekend. We ask that the family’s privacy is respected during this difficult time.”
