A 30 year old woman, dies in a 30ft fall from wall in late night accident

A British holidaymaker has plunged to her death in a freak accident whilst she was on a Mediterranean holiday with her husband.
Kay Flitcroft, 30, fell over a wall and tumbled 30 feet whilst walking late at night on the Spanish island of Menorca after staying out with friends when her husband returned to their accommodation.
Her husband Ben, 34, an executive officer manager realised something was wrong when he woke up the next morning to find his wife missing.
The couple, from Blackpool, Lancs, were part way through their holiday at the resort of Cala En Porter where they met up with her parents who had retired to the island.
Last Friday they were in a bar near their apartment watching England play Peru on television during the pre-World Cup football friendly.
After the match Mr Flitcroft said he was going to bed, but Mrs Flitcroft said she was staying out for a short while and it is thought she went for a walk.
In a statement Mr Flitcroft said: ‘We were having good times – eating, drinking and having fun as we always did. We were with friends we had met over there in previous years.
‘I’d had enough so she said the same thing she always said, ‘You don’t mind if I stay out for a bit do you?’ ‘That was the last time I saw her, she didn’t come home.
‘I woke up at seven o’clock in the morning and she wasn’t there, so I rang round a few people here and no one had seen sight of her since the night before.
‘I heard an ambulance outside so I ran to where it was, and there she was. My world then ended.’
Mrs Flitcroft was taken by ambulance to a hospital on the island, where she was accompanied by Mr Flitcroft and her parents Roger, 63, and Sue Isherwood, 61.
She was later transferred by air ambulance to Palma de Mallorca, on the neighbouring island of Mallorca.
But doctors were unable to save her and Mr Flitcroft received a call at 8.30am on the Sunday morning to inform them she had died at 11.30pm the previous night.
Mr Flitcroft added: ‘Kay was the life and soul of the party. She never wanted to miss anything and always wanted to be the last to leave. I’ve lost my soulmate.’
Mrs Flitcroft – a keen hockey player – was born and raised in Blackpool and attended the 118 year old Arnold School where fees cost £9,060 a year and former alumni include a Nobel Prize-winner, the founder of Jaguar Cars and ex-footballer Jimmy Armfield.
She studied at Liverpool Hope University before worked as an English teacher in South Korea. She met her husband-to-be through her brother Michael with whom he played football.
The couple married at the White Church, in Lytham St Annes, on July 30, 2011 and honeymooned in Portugal.
Mrs Flitcroft worked as a branch manager at William Hill bookmakers in Blackpool.
Mr Flitcroft who runs his own telecoms and advertising businesses said: ‘All the customers loved her and the staff loved her. She loved her friends and she’s got hundreds of friends.
‘People have been absolutely fantastic and she was one hell of a person. We were brilliant together and we were soulmates. She was such a good person and she was my best friend in the whole world.’
Mrs Flitcroft’s parents have been living on the island for the past six months after retiring from running a newsagents. It is thought they may return to live in England.
The family flew back into Liverpool’s John Lennon Airport on Monday night.
Spanish police say it could take up to four weeks before Mrs Flitcroft’s body is returned, pending investigations.
In a message on Facebook, the family said: ‘Kay’s husband and family would like to thank everyone for their support & messages during this hard time.
‘They would really like everyone’s help in raising some money to cover the cost of hospital fees and bringing Kay back home so she can be laid to rest.’
Louise Gamble, 30, who had been Mrs Flitcroft’s best friend for 20 years.
She said: ‘It is just devastating and I’m shocked. She was funny, outgoing and loved life.’
Paula Morris said: ‘She was an amazing young lady and we loved her so much..’
A spokesman for the Foreign Office said: ‘We are aware of reports and are investigating.’
