POLICE suspect suicide after a man died after his car was found on fire underneath a bridge near Velez Malaga.
Police were quickly on the scene, when they received an emergency call to the bridge beside the motorway near Baviera Golf.

Incredibly they managed to extinguish the flames and initially save the man, who was found unconscious inside the car.

The 63-year-old was flown by helicopter to hospital in Malaga where he remained in a critical condition with 80% burns to his body.

Sadly he did not pull through and died over the weekend.
