Map of Greece
Two children from Britain have been found dead in their hotel room while on holiday on the Greek island of Corfu.

Their father and his girlfriend were found unconscious in the same hotel room and have been taken to hospital.

It's not known how Robert Shepherd, six, and sister Christianne, seven, died but police are looking into whether they were poisoned.

The family, from Wakefield, West Yorkshire, were found by a cleaner in a hotel in the village of Gouvia.
