The bodies of twin British pensioners have been found in their flat in Fuengirola. The police believe it may be a double suicide and that no one else was involved.
The bodies of 83 year James and George Chalkley were found in the flat they shared after reports from neighbours of a ‘bad smell’ coming from the premises.
One body was on a bed and the other in a chair. Both had plastic bags tied tightly over their heads. A suicide note was found at the scene.
Police sources said that the case has been handed to an examining judge, but that everything pointed to a double suicide at this stage.

James Nutbrown, a 20-year-old Briton, is “the fastest boy in Javea.” The up-and-coming driver began racing at 14 in the Junior T-Cars championship. He then went on to win several novice awards in Rotax Junior Karting, coming sixth in the South-West championships .
In 2010 James finished third during his first season in the Autosport Young Guns Championship, progressing in 2011 to the Intersteps Championship. Lacking a sponsor he had to take a break in 2012 but concentrated on perfecting his racing techniques.
His ambition is to compete in Formula I but in the meantime James is competing in the Renault Clip Cup championship. Encouraged by Javea’s mayor Jose Chulvi, the town shield is prominent on his car, together with the Spanish and British flags.

ISN’T it wonderful when something you have been advocating for some years comes to fruition?
The recent success by the UKIP gives the message loud and clear that the British public has had enough. What is ironical however is, that if UKIP was elected to power, it would cause utter disaster.
Apart from its immigration and anti EU views, the party does not appear to have any other policies whatsoever. It is interesting that despite this lack of manifesto content, it still polled an average of 26 per cent in the local British council elections.
Perhaps at last the major parties have got the message and will finally get their act together and stop kow towing to those who would hijack the very fabric of British society and customs. Sadly however I fear it is all too late.
The recent reports, that in many areas the white British majority have now become the minority, is proof that clear thinking individuals, including Enoch Powel, should have been listened to years ago, not pilloried and brushed aside as racists and bigots.
Well I hate to be a prophet of doom, but I see the whole scenario becoming a great deal worse. If the obviously disillusioned British public doesn’t see a drastic change in government policies, particularly regarding immigration, I can envisage completely segregated areas, which will incite rioting in the streets of Britain on a scale that will make Broadwater seem like a picnic in the park.
Thank the Lord my family won’t have to live through it. On reflection how sad is that statement from a once fiercely patriotic and loyal individual who was once proud to be British?
The Americans really do worry me. Their sense of value and decision making is often beyond a reasonable thinking adult’s comprehension. To allow a child of five to receive a firearm as a present simply defies the imagination.
In the aftermath of this decision and subsequent ‘accident’ which resulted in the shooting dead of this child’s sister, it was the interviews with the locals that sent a shiver up my spine. I didn’t hear one televised interview that actually voiced any disapproval of the parents who provided this almost unbelievable ‘gift’.
All I heard was people praising them as being wonderful and kindly parents, who were a pillar of the community. Well, all I can say is that if their mental state condones giving a loaded gun to a five-year-old, and this attitude also extends to their leaders, then the whole world is in a great deal more precarious situation than was originally envisaged. Heaven help us all.
Thanks for all your letters. Sorry I can’t reply to them all but rest assured they are all read and much appreciated. Have a good week. Help somebody out if you can. And whatever ya do. Always.
Keep the faith.

A British tourist has drowned at Famara Beach on the island of Lanzarote.
Steve Potter, 43, thought to be from the north of England, was spotted floating face down in the water after leaving friends on the beach to go for a swim.
He was spotted face down in the water and dragged out of the water unconscious, but he died at the shoreline after failing to respond to efforts by emergency services to revive him.
A source said, 'He appears to have disappeared out of sight and reappeared a few minutes later floating face down in the water.
'There's nothing to suggest this was anything other than a tragic accident although we haven't been told the exact cause of death.'
The incident occurred late on Saturday afternoon on the two-mile long beach, on the northwest coast of the island, world-famous for surfing and kiteboarding and used by professionals who often train there.
A Foreign Office spokesman said, 'We can confirm the death of a British national in Lanzarote on April 20.
'We are providing consular assistance to his family at this difficult time.'
The results of the autopsy have not yet been made public.

Police have arrested a man in connection with allegedly attempting to abduct a three-year-old girl in the Canary Islands in January last year.
The 62-year-old was arrested on suspicion of attempted kidnap in London, after a public appeal was launched by Thames Valley Police.
Following the arrest, investigating officer Detective Constable John Swallow said, ‘We arrested a man in the London area in connection with this incident earlier today. The investigation is ongoing and I want to thank the public for their continued help.’
In January last year the family from Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, were on holiday in Costa Teguise, Lanzarote, when a man attempted to kidnap the girl in a shopping centre. The girl’s father noticed she was missing, and saw the little girl being led around a corner into an alleyway by a man who was holding her by the hand. He shouted out and ran up to his daughter, pulling her away from the man who then left the scene.
The family were on the beach a short time later and saw the same man, who spoke fluent English, sitting between some rocks and acting suspiciously.
The victim's father confronted the suspect, but he left before police arrived. Luckily, the quick-thinking family took photos of the man in an attempt to identify him.
