An Irish tourist has reportedly died after falling from an apartment block in the resort of Magaluf.

The 20-year-old man is said to have arrived in Majorca yesterday.

His body was discovered at around 11am this morning.

Paramedics who were called to the scene could do nothing to save the man and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Local reports said the man, who has not been named, was staying at a nearby hotel.

A duty court in Palma has been placed in charge of the investigation into the man's death and is awaiting a full police report.

A post mortem is expected to be carried out tomorrow in the Majorcan capital.
