A DIVE instructor has reportedly been arrested for raping a tourist during a dive excursion off the south coast of Majorca.

The alleged sex attack is said to have happened after the holidaymaker remained in the boat with one of the monitors while her friends began their dive with other instructors.

Respected Majorcan paper Ultima Hora said the incident happened on Friday during a dive trip off Cabrera, a national park which is 11 miles off the southern coast of Majorca.

She told her friends what had happened when they returned to the boat before making a formal complaint at a Civil Guard station in Santanyi in south-east Majorca.

The force has yet to make an official statement.

The woman, who underwent a medical examination at Son Espases Hospital in Palma after filing her complaint, is understood to be German.

The dive instructor, who has not been named, has denied any wrongdoing and has been released without charge by an investigating judge pending an ongoing criminal probe.

Statements are due to be taken in the next few days from friends of the holidaymakers who went on the diving trip.

The incident comes almost a year after two tourists were allegedly raped in Majorca.

Both attacks were claimed to have happened around the same time in Playa de Palma but were not believed to be connected.

One of the victims was German while the nationality of the other women was unknown.

The National Police said they were investigating both incidents at the time.
