British woman killed by landslide on Tenerife
Two people died after a landslide on to a beach today on the Spanish island of Tenerife, though no one is believed to be trapped beneath the rocks, local emergency services said.
The victims were a 34-year old local woman and a British woman aged around 57, they said.
Rescue crews, including sniffer dogs and medical teams, were working to clear the Los Gigantes beach but a spokeswoman from the emergency services said it was considered very improbable more people were under the debris.
No one else had been reported hurt, though some people were being treated for shock, the spokeswoman said.
The cliff side collapse piled rocks up to 16 feet deep on to the popular tourist beach.
