Majorca tragedy: British father and son drown

Louis Selby died along with his father, 27, as his mother and brothers watched on from the shore.

Mr Selby reportedly went into the water after the young boy was caught by a wave as he was standing on steps cut into the rocks overlooking a small deserted cove called Cala Antena.

The boy's mother alerted lifeguards from a nearby hotel but they were unable to save them.

According to reports, Mr Selby had been taking photographs of his son by the rocks shortly before he was swept away at around 11am yesterday.

Coastguards had put out a red flag to warn visitors not to enter the sea at the time.
