A Dutch teenage girl was killed on Tuesday while bungee jumping from a viaduct in Cantabria in northern Spain.

The 17-year-old fell some 40 metres into a dry riverbed below.

The teenager had been in a group from the Netherlands and Belgium staying at a nearby surf camp.

Last month, British tourist Kleyo De Abreu died in a bungee jump off a bridge near Granada, after she suffered fatal injuries when she hit the wall of the bridge below her.
