*A toddler was in intensive care last night after falling from a hotel balcony while on holiday with his family in Spain. Daniel Betley, from Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire, was on holiday with his mother and grandparents in Cambrils on the Costa Dorada when he fell 16ft (4.8m). He was flown to a hospital in Barcelona with head injuries. A hospital spokesman said the youngster's condition was "stable but serious".

A spokesman for the Best Cambrils Hotel, where the family had been staying since the start of the week, said staff were alerted to the incident on Tuesday when they heard screaming. Police at the beach resort could not confirm whether they were investigating.
