Details have been released of the death of an Irish walker in the Barranco de Azuaje near the town of Moya on Gran Canaria on Sunday.
74-year-old Thomas Willoughby was out walking with his wife in the narrow ravine to the north of the island, when he fell off a ledge.
The Azuaje national park has one of the island's last remaining laurel forests and is a popular spot with tourists and walkers alike.
Emergency services got a call at around 2pm on Sunday telling them that a walker had fallen into the Azuaje ravine, in an area with tricky access and that he needed urgent assistance.
Ambulances and a helicopter were dispatched immediately to the area and Willoughby was airlifted out of the ravine and taken to a football field in nearby Moya - the closest place with a suitable landing strip. Paramedics attended to him once on the ground, but they could do little more than certify his death.
Willoughby's death follows that of another Briton, aged 78, from a heart attack whilst out walking in Morgán the previous day.
