A British tourist has died after falling from a Spanish hotel balcony – the second Briton to die in Magaluf, Majorca, in three days.

Benjamin Harper, 28, from Twickenham, south-west London, fell to his death at the four-star Sol Antillas hotel on Friday.

It is believed that Mr Harper, a roofer, had gone out on to the balcony for a cigarette.

Three days previously, Adam Atkinson, 20, from Castleford, West Yorkshire, died in the resort after falling down stairs.
