London, Jul 10 (AP) British police were hunting for a man believed to be armed with a crossbow on Wednesday after three women were killed in a house near London. The BBC said the women killed were the family of its main radio racing commentator John Hunt.

Hertfordshire Police said Kyle Clifford, 26, was being sought over the suspected triple murder.

John Hunt is BBC radio's main horse racing commentator, his voice known to millions through his coverage of the world famous Grand National and The Derby. British media say that he found the bodies early Tuesday evening after returning home from reporting at Lingfield Park racecourse, which is just south of London.

Chief Superintendent Jon Simpson of Herfordshire Police said the incident involved a crossbow and other weapons.

“The manhunt also involves armed police officers and specialist search teams responding at pace in the wake of what has been an horrific incident," Simpson said.

Police did not say whether Clifford, who is from London, was connected to the women.

Clifford may still be armed and the public was warned not to approach him. (AP)
