A Civil Guard spokesman said: ‘I can confirm a British man has died after plunging from cliffs in the Cala d’Hort area.

‘The alarm was raised last night and his body was recovered this morning.

‘The incident is still being investigated but there is nothing at the moment pointing to it being the result of foul play.’

A well-placed source said the tourist, who was from Liverpool, had been drinking in the hours leading up to his death.

One said a vehicle the holidaymaker and his girlfriend are thought to have been using, had been towed away earlier in the day by local police.

The dead man is understood to have headed to the cliffs with his partner and friends shortly before he lost his life.

Another source said: ‘At one point he headed towards the rocks and grabbed hold of one and was hanging off and the next minute he was gone.’

The spot where the Brit died is popular with locals and visitors who head there to watch the sun go down.
