A resident told Derbyshire Live they had seen forensics in the area and that police had been at the scene since 6am.
They told the news outlet they went to bed at around midnight and could hear shouting but she didn’t look to see what was happening because she was used to it.
Other witnesses have said that officers have been there since between five and six this morning.
