The family of a Leeds couple who died in the Tunisia beach massacre say they are "deeply saddened'' by the deaths.

Christopher and Sharon Bell both died in the shooting spree at the beach resort of Sousse on Friday.

In a statement issued, the couple's family said: ``We are deeply saddened by the loss of both mum Sharon and dad Christopher who were taken from us during the terrorist attacks in Tunisia.

``Currently we have very little information surrounding the circumstances of the tragedy and we are working with the authorities to gather as much information as possible.''

The family's statement continued: ``As a family we are grieving and we would ask that our privacy be respected at this difficult time.

``Our thoughts are with all those affected by the tragedies. Thank-you.''

Until this statement was released, Mr and Mrs Bell were not known to be among the Britons who were shot dead by student Seifeddine Rezgui.
