The Service urged holidaymakers to be cautious, particularly "the elderly, frail and parents of young children".

In a statement, it added that “one in four drownings is fatal and the heat peak multiplies the risk of drowning by three”.

Meanwhile, an Irish tourist reportedly drowned on the island of Menorca last week.

The unnamed 69-year-old holidaymaker was pulled out of the sea by onlookers who tried to revive him.
