British couple killed and taxi driver missing as cars swept away in flash flooding hits Spain

10 Oct 2018

Serious flooding across parts of Spain and the Balearic Islands have left eight people dead, including a British couple after the taxi that they were travelling in was washed away.


The unnamed couple were in the town of Sant LLorenc des Cardassar on the island of Majorca when they, along with their taxi driver, were caught out by the flash flooding.

It is unknown as to whether the couple were tourists or ex-pats. The two victims were found still inside the taxi, rescuers are still searching for the missing taxi driver, along with several other people, and there are at least six people confirmed dead 

 

With waters rising, people sought safety on the roofs of buildings, as vehicles caught in the torrent were swept out to sea.

 

On the Spanish mainland, the Costa del Sol, in the south has been hit hard by the adverse weather, with widespread flooding and mudslides causing chaos, including causing major traffic problems on the main arterial road between Malaga and Marbella.

 

Parts of Spain are still on a red weather alert according to The Express
