Two men were killed this morning in a well known Marbella hotel, in what appears to be a tragic accident.

One victim fell from the seventh floor balcony of the Gran Melia Don Pepe and landed on the second man, who was drinking on the terrace below.

Emergency services were alerted to the accident at 1.45 this morning, who declared both men dead on the scene.

Police sources told Europa Press that the man who fell from the balcony was a 50-year-old Briton, while the person he struck was a 43-year-old Spaniard.

The Policia Nacional have opened an investigation.
