A British tourist has been arrested in Tenerife after his girlfriend fell to her death from their high-rise holiday apartment.
Ann Kerry Roberts, 25, who is also believed to be British, died instantly after plunging from the 12th floor of the building in the south of the island in the early hours of yesterday morning.
According to reports in Spain, the man was detained by police after detectives viewed footage from CCTV cameras which showed her returning to the flat.

The older couple were staying in a neighbouring apartment, although the father's partner is believed to have been in the bathroom of the flat where the death occurred when it happened around 2am on Friday.
Ms Roberts is understood to have fallen onto a lawn below the apartments, and her body was found by a security guard who was alerted by her boyfriend and his father.
Paramedics rushed to the scene but could do nothing to save her life.

The man was arrested after the three British adults were interviewed and Guardia Civil investigators looked through CCTV footage of their return to the holiday apartment.
But a police source said: 'Her partner was arrested because a woman had died in strange circumstances and officers needed to determine what if any level of involvement he may have had in that.
'The police investigation has subsequently determined he was not in the same spot as the woman when she fell to her death.'
No-one was immediately available for comment this morning at Apartments Paraiso del Sur, the apartment block in the popular resort of Adele where the incident happened.
The complex, which boasts a year-round outdoor pool and overlooks the Atlantic, is a short drive from the well-known Playa de Las Americas.
Ms Roberts is believed to have jetted to the island last month with her boyfriend and child.
A Foreign Office spokesman said: 'We are offering assistance to the family of a British woman who has sadly died in Tenerife.'
