A Scottish man has been arrested in Ibiza following the death of cyclist in an alleged hit and run on Tuesday evening.
Bernat Ribas, 49, died on impact after a head-on collision with a car on a narrow road called the Cami de Benimussa, at around 8pm on June 17.
According to local publications, a Jeep Wrangler then allegedly struck a rock by the side of the road before fleeing the scene.
Following an appeal by Sant Josep police, the vehicle was found near an ecology and education centre close to the scene of the crash.
A 35-year-old man was arrested by officers of the Spanish Civil Guard on Wednesday night in Sant Antoni de Portmany, nearly ten kilometres away.
STV News understands that the man is Scottish.
A statement by the Spanish Ministry of Internal Affairs said he had been arrested in connection with reckless homicide, leaving the scene of the accident, reckless driving and driving without a license.
It added: “At the stroke of midnight, the detainee turned himself in at the Civil Guard offices in Sant Antoni de Portmany, where, after being read his rights and the reasons for the arrest, he was taken to the Can Sifre barracks in Eivissa for investigation of the proceedings.”
Responding to STV News’ inquiry about the Scot, a spokesperson for the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office said: “We are supporting the family of a British man who was arrested in Ibiza and are in contact with the local authorities.”
