CLAYGATE, United Kingdom, (AFP) - French police on Saturday visited the house of a British family shot dead in the French Alps this week, a source close to the investigation said.

They are working alongside British forensics officers who have begun searching the family home, a large mock-Tudor fronted house in the quiet commuter village of Claygate in Surrey, some 25km south-west of London.

The party, including at least one French police officer in civilian clothes, were escorted into the house by a British officer.

Five gendarmes led by Colonel Marc de Tarle are in Britain to work on the case, though they did not all visit the family home.
