Two British men have been arrested in Magaluf on suspicion of raping a teenager.

The attack on the 18-year-old woman, also from the UK, allegedly took place in a tourist apartment at the notorious Spanish island resort at around midnight on Tuesday.

A spokesman for the Guardia Civil said it is believed that the woman had gone with the men - aged 19 and 18 - to the flat where she claims the rape took place.

She was taken to hospital and gave a description of the two suspects, who were arrested soon afterwards.

It comes after two British police officers were sent to Majorca to help police at the alcohol-fuelled destination last week.

West Midlands Police's Sergeant Brett Williams and Pc Martina Anderson have since left the island.

A Foreign Office spokesman said: "We can confirm the arrest of two British nationals in Spain on 19 August. We are providing consular assistance".
