A YOUNG woman has drowned after becoming trapped during the floods currently wreaking havoc along the Costa del Sol.

The 26-year-old reportedly became trapped by rising water at Club California, an ‘alternative club’ located between San Pedro and Estepona.

The woman, who was alone in the building, called emergency services, but firemen were unable to access the flooded basement in time.

Her body was later removed from the club.

The death has been confirmed by Estepona mayor Jose Urbano.
