The British couple who died after torrential rain caused flash flooding on the Spanish island of Mallorca have been named locally as Anthony and Delia Green, from Dumfries and Galloway. The couple, from the town of Moffat, were both in their 70s and understood to have been travelling in a taxi from Palma airport to their hotel in Cala Millor on the east coast of the island. The couple are believed to have drowned in the taxi as flood water engulfed the town of Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, about 40 miles (64km) east of Palma, the capital, on Tuesday evening. ” Rescuers searching for a German couple who have been missing in Mallorca since the flooding have recovered two bodies on the island. “We regret to confirm that the bodies of a man and a woman have been found near Artà, close to the area where the car of the missing German couple had been found,” the Balearic Islands emergency services said in a statement on Thursday.
