A British man has been found dead in a hotel room in Florence, Italy, along with a woman suffering serious injuries.
The man, 40, was found at the four-star Hotel Continentale near the Ponte Vecchio bridge on Saturday morning after staff alerted the police.
He is reported to have arrived in the city, the capital of the Tuscany region, on Friday night with the woman, 43, who was found in the same room as him. She is thought to be his partner, and is being treated at the city’s Careggi hospital.
Local police and forensic teams were seen carrying out investigations at the hotel on Saturday.
Hotel staff were unable to provide any further information about the incident when approached by PA Media.
A Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) spokesperson said: “We are in touch with the Italian police following the death of a British man in Florence.”
