A manhunt has been launched after three women were found dead in Bushey.

Police are searching for 26-year-old Kyle Clifford, who is from Enfield, and have described the deaths as a triple murder.

Officers were called to a home in Ashlyn Close, Bushey, just before 7pm yesterday evening (July 9).

Three women, who are believed to be related, were found at the scene with serious injuries, and died shortly afterwards.

Police have said they have searched through the night to find Clifford, who is wanted in connection with the incident, but that he has not been found.

They are now appealing for anyone with information about his whereabouts to come forward.

Officers believe that he could be in Hertfordshire or north London and that he may still have a weapon.

Detective Superintendent Rob Hall from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire major crime unit said: “This is an incredibly difficult incident for the victims’ family and we would ask that their privacy is respected as they come to terms with what has happened.”

He added “If you believe you see him [Clifford], please do not approach him and dial 999 straight away. He may still be in possession of a weapon.

“Our enquires will continue over the coming days to ascertain the full circumstances of what happened but I would also like to take this opportunity appeal to anyone who was in the area around Ashlyn Close from around lunchtime on Tuesday until 7pm, and believes they may have seen anything that could assist the investigation, to contact us.

“This incident will of course be of concern to local residents. Officers from the Neighbourhood Policing Team will be in the area today so please do speak to them if you need to.”
