Tornado rips through fairground in Spain

A British woman among those reported missing after a tornado ripped through a fairground in eastern Spain, knocking down a big wheel and injuring 35 people.

The site was closed to the public at the time and all of those injured were said to be fairground workers.

Britain’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office is investigating reports that the unnamed British woman has gone missing in Almeria.

Meanwhile the death toll has risen to ten as flash floods hit southern Spain.

Hundreds of people have been evacuated from their homes.


The hardest hit provinces are Malaga in the south and Almeria in the southeast.
