Police said the cause of death will become clearer after the results of toxicology tests.

The quiet residential road was closed for nine hours on Thursday night while Crime Scene Investigators took forensics at the scene.

Residents living nearby said they were shocked by the discovery. Steven Smith, of Allandale Road, said: “People use that alleyway to hand over drugs, so we don’t know if it was to do with that.

“A lot of parents are keeping their children indoors because they are scared.

“We don’t know what happened. The alleyway is used as a cut through between Kyme Road and Allandale Road, but it is not nice to walk down alone at night.” Danny Rossington, of Craigdale Road, said: “This is a quiet road so you don’t expect something like that to happen here. It is surprising.”

Dennis Woods, of Dymoke Road, said: “It’s a bit of a shock. You could say this is the safest part of Romford. I have lived here for 18 years and never seen anything like this.”

Sri Jukunta, of Dymoke Road, said: “This is a good area, with a tight-knit community. It is a shock to hear about the dead men.”
