The scene is currently cordoned off as forensic officers gather evidence.

A neighbour told Mirror Online: "I did hear a commotion but I thought it was someone leaving a party.

"There was a party going on there."

And another said: "I did hear a lot of shouting and then an ambulance came."

Another said: "Apparently there was some sort of party going on at the house and a group of young people arrived and got into the house. I don't think the boys knew each other.

"Soon after midnight loads of police cars and ambulances arrived in the road and there were blue lights everywhere. I have been told that the boys who died were not related in anyway and that the murders look a bit like gang violence.

"This is normally a nice quiet neighbourhood and hardly anything ever happens here. I just can't believe that two teenage boys have been viciously murdered in our street."

Head of Crime Detective Chief Superintendent Ian Hunter said: “Thames Valley Police is in the early stages of a double murder investigation after two teenage boys have tragically died in this shocking incident.

“Our priorities at this time are to conduct a thorough investigation and to support those who have been affected.

"Officers are currently at the scene which has been cordoned off and members of the public are asked to avoid the area."
