Welsh holidaymaker dies in 50ft balcony fall in Ibiza

A Welsh man has died after falling 50ft from his hotel balcony while on holiday in Ibiza.

Grant Weston, 24, from Pembroke, had been on holiday with around a dozen friends when he died after a night out in San Antonio on Wednesday morning.

Police are not treating his death as suspicious.

A Foreign Office spokesman told the Daily Mail: "We can confirm the death of a British national, Grant Weston, in Ibiza on 14 August.

"We are providing consular assistance to the family at this difficult time."

Grant played for the village soccer team of Hundleton in Pembrokeshire. According to ITV News, manager Mark Powell said: "He was a genuine lad. He had everything to live for and it's so cruel that he has been taken away from us."

And Hundleton committee member Paul Jones told the BBC: "He was a lovely lad. Quiet but very likeable and he was an excellent footballer.

"We are devastated by this tragic event and he will be sadly missed. Our hearts reach out his family at this extremely sad time."

Grant lived with his parents, Kim, 58, and Sheila, 55, and his brother Robert, 22.

The news comes just days after another British man died after hitting his head following a night out on holiday in Ibiza.

Christopher Briggs, 25, was found dead in his room at the two-star Apolo Hotel after partying in the area of San Antonio.

According to the Evening Standard, it is believed he fell and hit his head after returning to his hotel room alone.
