British woman dies after fall in Benidorm

A British woman has died after falling from a 10th-floor apartment in the Spanish resort of Benidorm.

There are reports she had been partying with other Britons at the Apartamentos Payma block in the area known as ‘Little England’ when she fell.

Police said they were questioning people at the party, but it is not yet clear how the incident occurred and whether the woman was on holiday or lived in the resort.

Local newspaper Diario Informacion reported she was 25 years old.

Benidorm’s apartment blocks, fast-food outlets, bars and nightclubs have long drawn British tourists looking for cheap package holiday.

Last November, 21-year-old Danielle Hall from Newcastle also died after falling from a ninth-floor Benidorm apartment.
