British grandmother killed in tragic accident


A 58-YEAR-old British woman was killed when she was thrown from the mobility scooter she was using into a ravine in Benidorm following a crash.

Police are investigating the cause of the accident on Wednesday afternoon which occurred near the Villa Marina apartment block, on high ground which marks the start of the Sierra Helada coastal mountain range.

A holiday sector source told Costa Blanca News that British grandparents were on holiday with their 11-year-old grandson.

They had hired two scooters for the day – the grandad had a single seater and the youngster accompanied his grandmother on a two-seater.

The party of three had planned to go up to the cross monument at the entrance to the natural park.
