Family die in 'murder-suicide' on Spain's Costa del Sol

A family has been found dead following a suspected murder-suicide in Spain.

The mother and daughter were found in the bedroom of an apartment in Mijas, on the Costa Del Sol, and the husband's body was in another room, police said.

The women both held Irish passports; the Department of Foreign Affairs in Dublin told the BBC. Reports suggest the father was British.

The couple, in their 50s, and their adult daughter - who was understood to have had a disability - lived in Spain.

Tom Burridge reports from the Costa del Sol in Spain.
