Several national newspapers quoted a police spokeswoman as saying: “I can confirm the death of British national Priscilla White, aged 72.

“We are still awaiting autopsy results, but everything at this stage is pointing towards her death being the result of natural causes.”

When contacted by the Press Association, police in Estepona said they were not authorised to give out information over the phone, while police in nearby Marbella said they would not hold records of deaths in Estepona.
