The dismembered bodies of two children, aged around one and four, and two adults were found at a house near Madrid on Sunday.

The gruesome discovery was made in a house outside the village of Pioz, approximately 60km northeast of the capital.

A police spokesperson told reporters that the children were "aged around four and one" and that the house was reported to police after a neighbour smelled something strange coming from the property.

Local Mayor Ricardo Garcia Lopez told reporters that the bodies all belonged to the one family that were renting the property.

According to neighbours, the family were not Spanish nationals, but from South America, the mayor also said.
