Four deaths 'are a family tragedy'
Police say that the deaths of a man and three children found in a disused quarry appeared to be the result of a "tragic family situation".
Speaking at a press conference at Shrewsbury Police Station, Detective Chief Insp Neil Jamieson, of West Mercia Police, said officers were not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident. A murder investigation has been launched.
The bodies - believed to be those of Ceri Fuller, 35, his son Sam, 12, and daughters Rebecca, eight, and Charlotte, seven - were found in a wooded area at Poles Coppice on Pontesbury Hill, about nine miles west of Shrewsbury.
The discovery came after a member of the public reported finding a red Land Rover Freelander, CK51 YUV, believed to have been driven by Mr Fuller, at the entrance to Poles Coppice.
Officers carried out a search and found the bodies of an adult male, and three young children, one male and two female. The bodies were found within 30 to 40 yards of each other.
A murder investigation has been launched and a team of detectives and forensic experts are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death.
A Home Office pathologist is to carry out post mortem examinations on the bodies and the coroner has been informed, Mr Jamieson said.
Police have appealed for anyone who saw the red Freelander Land Rover or the occupants of the vehicle to contact them to help them to piece together the vehicle's movements.
They believe the vehicle left Gloucestershire last Wednesday night or early Thursday morning.
It it thought to have been seen in the Leominster area at midday on Thursday and driving up to the Welshpool area later that afternoon.
