Around 20 people - most of them British - have been arrested in Ibiza following a large-scale drugs raid by Spanish and UK police agencies.

The joint operation was carried out by Spanish National Guard and the UK's Serious Organised Crime Agency (Soca).

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office said it was aware of the arrests and was offering consular assistance.

Last September 25 Britons were charged with drug offences after similar raids in Ibiza.

A Soca spokesman confirmed the joint operation, which began on Friday night, but was unable to comment further.
