Two British holidaymakers were killed in a buggy accident on the Greek island of Santorini.

The man and a woman, both said to be 26, fell into a 656ft ravine while driving the rented vehicle on the Profitis Ilias mountain.

The peak is the highest point on the island.

The couple were declared dead at the scene on Sunday, according to local media reports.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office confirmed the deaths of the two Britons.

A spokesman said: ‘Our staff are assisting the families of two British people who have died on the island of Santorini and are in contact with the Greek authorities.”
