Two ‘British holidaymakers’ have died after falling from the cliff in Majorca they were attempting to climb.

Initial reports said another man has been injured and a fourth, both also described locally as British, were understood to be missing.

But officials have now confirmed only the two men who died were involved in the tragedy.

They were aged between 40 and 50.

They are believed to have fallen from rocks in Portocolom in the southeast of Majorca into the sea.

The two men killed are thought to have landed on a cave called Cova del Cosi. They died instantly.

According to reports, they were part of a group of four people – but officials on the island said only two of them fell into the sea.

It is thought they were practising psicobloc when the incident happened.

Psicobloc also known as DWS (Deep Water Soloing) which involves climbing rock faces above water, usually sea cliffs, free solo without harnesses or ropes and using the water to break your fall.

The Guardia Civil, the Maritime Safety Agency and local police rushed to the scene of the incident at 1pm today, Majorca Daily Bulletin reports.

Although witnesses suggested that there was one other person injured and a missing person, Guardia Civil officers have confirmed that this information was incorrect.

Reports say that the bodies of the English speaking men were taken to the port in Portocolom.

In a similar incident earlier this year, a 56-year old man fell 150ft to his death from a clifftop beauty spot in Majorca.

His body was discovered at the bottom of the Es Colomer viewpoint which provides stunning views of the Spanish island's northern coast.
