An investigation is continuing into the deaths of two babies whose bodies were found in a house.
Three people remain in police custody following the discovery at an end-of-terrace property in Wildmill, Bridgend.
South Wales Police said two men, aged 37 and 47, and a 29-year-old woman have been arrested on suspicion of concealing the birth of a child.
Forensic examiners were at the three-storey house in Maes-Y-Felin and a grassed area at the rear of the street has been cordoned off.
Huw David, leader of Bridgend County Borough Council, said: “This is shocking and tragic news, and the residents of Wildmill are supporting one another closely while South Wales Police carry out their ongoing investigations.
“The council is offering the police its full co-operation, and is reminding people of the importance of remaining calm and avoiding speculation while the investigation is under way.
“If anyone has any information that they think may be relevant or helpful to the police, it can be reported directly to them by completing an online form.
“In the meantime, if any member of the public has a concern about the immediate wellbeing or safety of a child, they should report it immediately by calling 999.”
