Driver’s body found as northern Spain hit by floods

Firefighters in Spain have discovered the body of a driver whose car was swept away by flash flooding.

The rain and hail on Monday evening led to road closures and power outages across the country, but in Tafalla in northern Spain it caused two rivers to burst their banks.

The identity and gender of the person who died has not yet been confirmed.

Videos and photos on social media showed how the water swept away cars in Tafalla and deluged streets.

The Navarre regional government said the town, which has a population of 10,000, was cut off until the early hours of Tuesday.

It said a major railway line had also been disrupted.

In Pamplona, which is around 25 miles (40km) away, the famous annual bull run had to be suspended, as well as a bullfight.

More rain is expected on Tuesday evening, according to the national weather agency AEMET.
