This is the British mum found strangled to death with a mobile phone cord at an apartment in Mallorca.

Her husband Warren Lyttle, 50, has been arrested on suspicion of murder and remains is in police custody.

Local emergency services said a man had called them and allegedly confessed to killing his wife.

The incident at the Siesta Apartments complex has shocked the holiday island.

The couple previously lived in Hendon, North West London.

Tonight Warren Lyttle's mum Joan, 71, told The Mirror she in "complete shock" at the news.

Spain's Guardia Civil has now taken over the investigation and Mr Lyttle is being held in custody.

He is expected to go before a magistrate tomorrow or Monday.
