A British holidaymaker has died in popular Spanish holiday town Magaluf after falling down 20 steps at a pub on Friday evening.

Ian Frankland, 36, suffered a severe head injury and a heart attack after losing his balance on the steps that lead to the pub's toilets.

According to the Daily Mail, the incident happened around 8pm at Mulligans Bar on the corner of Punta Ballena, one of Magaluf's busiest streets for nightlife.

Police cordoned off the area and paramedics tried to save him but he died at the scene.

The tragic accident happened while Mr Frankland was on a weekend break on the island of Mallorca.

His body has been taken to the Institute of Forensic Medicine in Palma for a post-mortem.

A spokesman for the local Civil Guard told the Daily Mirror: "The incident will be fully investigated but everything is pointing to the British national dying as the result of a tragic accident.

"There is no indication any crime has taken place."

A spokeswoman for the Foreign Office said: "We can confirm the death of a British national in Magaluf, Majorca, on May 15. We are providing consular assistance to the family at this difficult time."
