Police say they are not looking for anybody else in connection with the deaths of a man and two young children discovered next to a car near a bridleway in Newton Stacey, Hampshire.

Michael Pedersen, 51, who ran a transport firm, killed his son Ben, seven, and daughter Freya, six, on a day out after he separated from their mother Erica, 43.

Detectives were alerted to the deaths after a passer-by found the three bodies by the family car on a bridleway at around 6.15pm on Sunday night.
