A 23-year-old woman from Hertfordshire has been killed in a fall from a hotel balcony at a holiday resort in Majorca.

Charlotte Faris, 23, from Stevenage, fell to her death in the early hours of Saturday in Magaluf.

She had checked into the Teix Hotel just hours earlier. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) confirmed the death on Sunday.

Ms Faris is the third British holidaymaker to die on the Spanish island in less than a month.

An FCO spokesman said: "We are aware and can confirm the death of British national Charlotte Faris in Majorca on 5 May.

"We are providing consular assistance to her family."

Helmino Crespo, 50, who used to own the hotel and now runs the bar next door, said he had spoken to staff and they were very upset.

He said Ms Faris fell in front of the four-storey hotel from a balcony about 30ft (10m) from the ground.

"She stayed at the hotel last year and I knew her. She was on holiday with a friend who is very upset.

"Police are investigating and eight police cars and an ambulance came."

Benjamin Harper, 28, from Twickenham, south-west London, fell to his death at the four-star Sol Antillas hotel in Magaluf on April 20.

It is believed the roofer, who was on a stag do, had gone on to a balcony for a cigarette before leaning over and falling to his death.

He died three days after Adam Atkinson, 20, of Castleford, West Yorkshire.

He is thought to have fallen down some stairs at the Hotel Martinique, which is in the same resort.
