A holidaymaker plunged five floors to his death after trying to leap across hotel balconies during a "lads weekend" in Spain, an inquest heard today.

Andrew Henderson, 21, had been on an all-day drinking session before he was found with multiple fractures by hotel workers at the popular resort of Torremolinos, Costa del Sol.

Fellow holidaymakers recalled how he had repeatedly been jumping from his balcony to get into his friends' room.

Speaking at the inquest, his father, Norman Henderson, said his son, from Hanover Way, Windsor, had "probably been messing around" before the tragic plunge in April this year.

Peter Bedford, coroner for Berkshire, delivered a verdict of death by misadventure at Windsor Guildhall.
