Two Britons were killed and two others seriously injured when their car spun-off a motorway in south-east Spain.

Roger Emery, 69, and expat Anthony Coleman, 72, were killed when their car left a road near Alicante on Wednesday.

Mr Emery and the two injured men, aged 68 and 65, were from Essex.

A Foreign and Commonwealth Office spokesman said: "We are aware of the deaths of two British nationals and the hospitalisation of two others on 7 March in Murcia province."

The spokesman said consular assistance was being provided to the families of the men.
