An, as yet unnamed, British couple aged in their seventies were washed away during a flash flood in Spain.
The water appears to have raced through a ravine and into the marketplace where the couple sat. It caused damage to cars and market stalls, killing the British couple. Their bodies were found trapped under a trailer.
Finestrat is close to Benidorm when many British people take vacations. The BBC has reproted that, "the town's council was fined 83,000 euros by the local hydrographic authority for paving the ravine bed without permission last July" They were also advised against holding the weekly market where the incident happened.
RIP and condolences
