A man has been arrested over the death of a British woman at a holiday apartment block in Benidorm during a hen party. The woman died on Saturday in the popular tourist area in the south east of Spain.

The Sun said the victim, who is thought to be from Scotland, was part of a group of more than 30 women who had travelled to the resort for a hen weekend. A British man has been arrested by police in Benidorm in connection with the incident.

A Foreign Office spokesman said: “We are supporting the family of a British national who sadly died in Benidorm on April 29.” He added: “We are in contact with the local authorities following the arrest of a British man.”
