A British woman has died in the Spanish holiday resort of Marbella after reportedly falling as she tried to climb into her apartment from outside.

Angela Kennett died yesterday in the up-market tourist destination in the province of Malaga, the Foreign Office said.

A spokesman said: "We can confirm the death of a British national in Malaga on 26 October.

"We are in contact with the family and are providing consular assistance."

Ms Kennett was thought to be trying to get into her apartment via a balcony when she fell.
