German police have found five bodies in a house just outside Berlin.

Officers found the bodies in Koenigs Wusterhausen, south-east of the capital, while responding to a call from someone concerned that the house’s residents had not been seen.

Investigators said they believe the victims – two 40-year-olds and children aged 10, eight and four, all of whom lived in the house – were killed.

They found gunshot and stabbing wounds on the bodies.
