The suspect at the center of a massive manhunt for the “murders” of a mother and her two daughters has been captured by police.

Kyle Clifford, 26, was found by police, who say no shots were fired at the suspect.

A manhunt has been launched by police following the murders of the wife and two daughters of a well-known horse racing commentator.

Police and paramedics were called to the Hunt family home in Bushey on Tuesday night after reports three women had been found with serious injuries.

John Hunt’s wife, Carol, and two of his daughters were found seriously injured at the scene.

They died at the scene despite the efforts of paramedics.

Detective Inspector Justine Jenkins, of the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Serious Crime Unit, said: “This continues to be an incredibly difficult time for the victims’ family and we ask that their privacy is respected as they come to terms with what has happened.

“This investigation is progressing at a rapid pace and formal identification of victims has not yet occurred. The premature naming of potential victims has caused great distress to the family when they should have been given space to cope with their sudden loss.

“After extensive investigation, the suspect has been located and no one else is being sought in connection with the investigation at this time.”

A London Ambulance spokesman said: “Ambulance crews and the London Air Ambulance attended an incident at Lavender Hill Cemetery, Enfield, this afternoon (Tuesday 10).

“We treated a man at the scene and took him to a major trauma center.”

Hunt’s daughters are Hannah and Louise.
