A family believed to have been part of a murder-suicide have been named locally as Philip Wood, his wife Sheila, and their daughter, Sophie.
Sophie and Mrs Wood have been confirmed as being Irish, although officials have so far been unable to confirm where in Ireland Mrs Wood comes from.
Police said they are working on the theory that the deaths, at a property on the Costa Del Sol, were a murder-suicide.
Officials are attempting to contact their next of kin.
