Each year thousands of Brits head to Magaluf on the Spanish island to enjoy the sun, sea and partying.

Images of debauchery are common as revellers get carried away.

Embarrassingly it is also causing a serious problem for a hospital on the island which is inundated with drunk tourists each year.

Son Espases is the main public hospital on the outskirts of the capital Palma which is often filled to saturation point at night.

“They were British and had been playing drinking games in Magaluf and were sharing hospital space with patients with much bigger needs”

A doctor told Diario de Mallorca said: ‘We had five drunk youngsters who work up at the hospital today, they were under 18.

“They were British and had been playing drinking games in Magaluf and were sharing hospital space with patients with much bigger needs.”

Another member of staff said: “Late at night we receive an avalanche of young people who are drunk or come in with bumps and bruises from fights in the street.”

It is nothing new and staff have in the past asked for medical tents to be put up around the city to deal with tourists who have drunk too much.”

The plan would be for it to be run by volunteers and the tents would be more suited to dealing with minor cases of intoxication.

It has never taken off the ground and it is rumoured that local politicians are unhappy with the image it would give.

A hospital spokesman told DailyStar Online: “You get people who are drunk and things get out of hand but there we go.

“It is the same every year.

“It would be great if it didn’t happen.

“The hospital can cope but it is a case of treating the most serious cases first obviously.”
