Two die and one missing in sudden storm in Alicante

Friday market at Finestrat
ALICANTE / Cala de Finestrat (Agencies) Two people, a man and a woman, died and another is missing as a result of a sudden heavy rainstorm. The three are believed to be British, but this is unconfirmed. The incident happened at about midday today at a boot sale that was taking place on a steep riverbank near Benidorm. Another six people were injured when several dozens of stalls and some vehicles were swept into the river below when the ground gave way. The nearby beach was covered in merchandise, and stallholders watched most of it float off into the sea, according to sources.
