There have been at least ten deaths after devastating floods hit Nadal's native island off the coast of Spain.

At least five people were killed as heavy rain and flash floods hit Sant Llorenc on the Spanish island of Mallorca late on Tuesday, emergency services said.

The Spaniard sprung into action after the town of Sant Llorenc des Cardassar, about 60 kilometres east of the island's capital Palma, was devastated by the rainstorm.

Mr Green, 77, and his wife, 75, were being driven to a hotel in Cala Bona when they were caught in the floodwaters, newspaper Diario de Mallorca reported.

The Foreign Office said in a statement: "We are in contact with the Spanish authorities responding to flooding in Majorca, and urgently seeking updates from them".
