Five killed in torrential rainstorms in Majorca

A spokesman for the Spanish central government's office in the Balearic Islands told AFP nine people had died while six others had been formally identified as missing.

At least 10 people died, including two Britons, and a boy remained missing on Wednesday (Oct 10) after flash floods hit the Spanish holiday island of Majorca, tearing through village streets and sweeping away cars.

World No.1 tennis star Rafael Nadal has taken part in the recovery efforts after a torrential rainstorm caused flash flooding and killed at least 10 people in Mallorca.

A Foreign Office spokesman said: 'We are supporting the family of two British people following their deaths in Spain, and will do all we can to assist them at this deeply hard time.

Authorities said 80 soldiers and seven vehicles from the military's emergency unit joined more than 100 rescuers who had been working in the area overnight.

Bauza told Cadena SER radio that two other victims were local residents, including an elderly woman whose body was found in the basement of her house.

Spain's Prime Minister, Pedro Sanchez, has visited the island today and said in a Tweet: " I want to convey our gratitude to the emergency services, who work tirelessly to serve all those affected".

"They have found the bodies of the two British people in the auto", a spokesman for the taxi company said. "We had to swim to try to survive". The flooding also affected phone communications, destroyed two bridges and forced the closure of 11 roads.

The weather agency, AEMET, said more heavy rainfall is expected Wednesday in eastern and southern parts of the Iberian peninsula.

The Spanish parliament held a tribute to the victims in the form of a minute's silence.

Spain's meteorological office said the neighbouring islands of Ibiza and Formentera were now on high alert as the rain and storms moved there.
