A British tourist has fallen to his death from a hotel balcony at a hotel at the four-star Sol Antillas hotel in Magaluf (Mallorca).

28-year-old Benjamin Harper from Twickenham, south-west London, died after falling from the balcony on Friday.  He is the second Briton to die at the same Spanish resort in three days.

It is believed that Harper, a roofer by trade, had gone out on to the balcony for a cigarette, leant over and fell to his death while on a stag do.

His death comes just three days after another Briton, 20-year-old Adam Atkinson from Castleford, West Yorkshire, died in the resort after reportedly falling down some stairs.

Harper's father, Kenneth, 64, has been reported as saying: "It looks like he popped out on to the balcony for a cigarette, leaned over and fell. No foul play was involved.

"His mates are really cut up about it. They are coming home tomorrow and coming here to see me."

The hotel where Harper died offered no comment. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office said : "We are aware of the death of a British national in Mallorca, Spain, on 20 April. We are providing consular assistance to the family at this difficult time."
