The mother of two children apparently killed by their father today spoke of her devastation and loss.

Victoria Jones said sons Jack, 11 and three-year-old Bryn, "meant the world to me" and would be "sorely missed" by their friends and family.

The young brothers were found alongside the body of their father, Graham Anderson, 26, in a flat in Tidworth, Wiltshire, on Saturday.

Wiltshire Police said the boys' deaths were being treated as suspicious but detectives were not looking for anyone else at this stage.

In a statement released by police, Ms Jones, from Andover, Hampshire, said: "Jack was a keen footballer and absolutely loved playing the game.

"He was a very intelligent boy. Maths and science were his favourite subjects. He was loved by everyone who met him as he was such a sociable child.

"He was caring and loving towards Bryn and was the best big brother in the world.

"Bryn was a cheeky chappie who doted on and looked up to his elder brother. He enjoyed playing in his sandpit and on his trike. He loved animals, especially cats.

"Jack was due to start secondary school this week while Bryn was due to start at playgroup.

"Both Jack and Bryn will be sorely missed by their family and friends. The boys meant everything to me."
