Sean Hercules was found with a gun in the Cancelada area of Malaga, Spanish police said.

Gunshots had been fired, but it is not clear who fired the shots. An investigation is ongoing, they added.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) confirmed the death of a British man in Spain but did not disclose his identity.
