A BRITISH man who allegedly threw a prostitute from his second floor window in Barcelona has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

Incredibly, the 27-year old sex-worker was saved from the 10-metre fall as her clothes snagged onto a metal bar below.

Her alleged attacker, who has been named only as Joseph Stephen H, 41, was detained on the balcony of the building as firefighters rescued the dangling woman.
