A 21-year-old man from Glasgow has drowned while on holiday on the Spanish island of Ibiza.

Barry Hesford is believed to have been pulled unconscious from a hotel swimming pool in the resort of San Antonio at about 19:00 on Monday.

The circumstances surrounding his death are not yet clear, and police in Spain are investigating.

A spokeswoman for the Foreign Office said: "We can confirm the death of a British national on 1 August."

Mr Hesford is believed to have been staying at the Aparthotel Bahia in San Antonio. The 63-room complex has two swimming pools.
