TWO police officers have been punished over the suicide of a British tourist in a Benidorm cell.

They have been suspended for five days without pay after 36-year-old Antony Abbott from Bolton died within an hour of his arrest in October 2015.

The supermarket employee was arrested after he got into a fight with his partner and mother of his two children Catherine Corless.

An investigation revealed Abbott took his own life during an unsupervised 18 minutes when a policeman left his post without permission, leading to a coroner describing the death as ‘negligence’.
