A British teenager died after a bar fight on the Spanish island of Ibiza, the Foreign Office said yesterday. Richard Caisley, 19, from Newcastle upon Tyne, died in hospital on Thursday following the incident in San Jose two days before.

Two other men in their late teens from the Nottingham area have been arrested and were yesterday due to appear in court over the incident.

A Foreign Office spokeswoman said: "Two British nationals have been arrested in connection with the incident and are due to appear in court. Both have been visited by consular staff."

It was reported that Mr Caisley was initially treated for an ear injury after the fight on Tuesday but later became unwell in the hotel where he was staying with three friends.

They called an ambulance but he was already in a coma when he arrived at hospital and he died the following day from a brain haemorrhage.
