Briton killed in Majorca bar fight
Sunday 27 March 2011
A British tourist has been killed in the Spanish island holiday resort of Magaluf in what was thought to be a bar-room brawl.
Gary Vigors reportedly got into an argument yesterday with a fellow Briton with whom he was on a cricket tour.
His throat was slashed with a broken bottle and he bled to death following the fracas in Majorca, according to Spanish press.
Spanish authorities are investigating the incident.
A Foreign Office spokeswoman said: "We can confirm the death of a British national in Magaluf in Spain. Consular staff are in contact with the next of kin and providing consular assistance."
A customer at the Plaza Cafe, where the fight broke out, said a big group of British men had been drinking there.
The man, who did not give his name, said the attack happened outside the bar, adding that police and an ambulance attended the scene.
