    A British woman was one of two tourists found dead on a beach in Portugal after apparently falling from a wall, the Foreign Office has said.

    The woman and an Australian national were found on Tuesday in Ericeira, a town 25 miles (40 km) north of Lisbon.

    Portuguese officials said the pair are thought to have been on the 30-metre (100ft) high wall before they died.

    Local media report the authorities say they may have fallen while trying to recover a phone or to take photographs.

    A Foreign Office spokeswoman said: “We are in touch with local authorities following the death of a British woman in Portugal and are providing support to her family.”

    Australia’s foreign affairs department said they were assisting the family of its citizen.
