Three adults in a UK car are found shot dead in France - with the body of a cyclist found nearby and a young girl seriously hurt.

Four people have been shot dead in the French Alps - with three of them found inside a British-registered BMW.

The bodies were found in a forest car park near the village of Chevaline, near Annecy lake, in Haute-Savoie.

Three adults were found dead inside the four-wheel drive vehicle, which had UK licence plates.

A man was found at the wheel, and two women in the back.

A teenage girl was found near the car, and initial reports said she died later from her injuries.

A local prosecutor has now said she is in a critical condition in hospital.

The body of a cyclist was also found nearby.

All five had been shot, and a number of shell casings were found at the scene.

The website of regional newspaper Le Dauphine Libere said the gruesome scene was discovered by another cyclist who is in shock.

There are 60 police officers involved in the operation, and the nearby area has been sealed off as investigations continue.

A Foreign Office spokesman: "We are aware of the reports of the shooting and we are looking into these urgently."
