An 83-year-old German tourist has died after drowning in the sea off Torrox Costa.

Emergency services were called to the beach at around 6pm last Sunday when a body was spotted floating near to the shore.

Paramedics attempted to resuscitate the man for around 30 minutes.

He had been staying in a hotel in the town with his wife, who became concerned about his whereabouts when she lost sight of him a few minutes after he'd gone into the sea for a swim.
