    The bodies of Peter and Jean Tarsey, both aged 77, were found at their villa on Sunday afternoon, the Guardia Civil said.

    A spokeswoman from Spain's national police force said friends of the couple went to visit them because they had not been seen for a few days.

    A Guardia Civil spokeswoman said: "They [the friends] found the door was open and there were no signs of a break-in.

    "The couple, who had been living in Spain for 18 years, were found dead with gunshot wounds on the sofa.
    "The Guardia Civil is now awaiting the results of post-mortem examinations and investigations continue."
