A four-year-old British boy has drowned in a pool in Spain.
The little boy was dead when emergency services arrived at the holiday development in Torrevieja on the Costa Blanca on Wednesday evening, local authorities confirmed.
It is thought the boy and his parents had only recently arrived on their holiday to the seaside city, south of Alicante.
A spokesman for the Foreign Office said: “Following the death of a British national in Spain, we are providing support to their family.
“Our thoughts are with them at this difficult time.”
