Police investigating the deaths of a British man and his two children in a pool at a resort on the Costa Del Sol have said the case can be closed after concluding their initial report.

Gabriel Diya, 52, his daughter Comfort, nine, and his son Praise-Emmanuel, 16, drowned on Christmas Eve.

A police spokesman described it as a freak accident and put it down to a lack of swimming ability.

But Gabriel Diya’s wife, Olubunmi, wants the investigation to continue.
