A RETIRED pub landlord was given ‘the shock of his life’ after discovering a skeleton at his dream Costa del Sol home.
Welshman Terry Nash, 70, called in police when he discovered a human skeleton in the cellar of his new three-bed property in Mijas.
The skeleton was discovered by builders during restoration work and the bones have now been removed to determine their age.
“One of the workmen knocked on my door around midday while I was making lunch and told me they had found a body in my cellar,” Nash, from Porthcawl, said.
“I was pretty horrified as you can imagine, especially because I knew the previous owners had dug out the basement to turn it into a utility room around ten years ago and the woman’s husband died around six years ago.
He added: “It was only when I saw the skeleton that I realised it was much older.”
