AT LEAST 12 people have now died in the Mallorca floods, as rescue workers recover the body of a missing German couple.

The pair, both in their sixties, died together as the Ford Focus they were travelling in was swept away by the torrent of water devastating Mallorca.

Spain’s Civil Guard found a mobile phone in the vehicle used to contact a friend who notified emergency services.

A boy, 5, may be the 13th victim of this natural disaster, as emergency services have confirmed he is still missing.

As well as the human cost, Mallorca Council estimates the damage to roads and bridges totals at least €29 million.
