New evidence suggesting Kirsty Maxwell, 27, climbed onto the balcony until she fell after losing her grip is set to be reviewed by a Spanish judge. 

The Brit died during a pal’s hen party after falling from the apartment in the popular resort town on April 29, 2017.

It had originally been believed that Kirsty had fallen from a balcony belonging to men from Nottingham. 

Police arrested Joseph Graham, who was in the flat at the time, on suspicion of homicide, although he was later released without charge.

Four other men were questioned in court three months later. 

Spanish cops believed Kirsty jumped from the balcony, but her family said evidence points to her climbing the barrier on the balcony before losing her grip and falling. 

Brian Curry, Kirsty’s dad, told BBC Scotland’s The Nine show: “We’ve got people on board and the team is getting bigger.

“We’ve got velocity fall experts, forensic experts because we need every piece of back-up to take it to the judge.” 

The family’s lawyer, Lorena Soler Bernabeu, has now met them in Scotland and given assurances the investigation is continuing. 

He later added: “We’re coming up for two years this April and we never thought we would be here. We thought this would be done and dusted. 

“We were obviously very naive about that and how judicial wheels turn. 

“Even now, we know we’ve got a lot of things we want to process with and we realise we can’t do this all at once.

“It’s still frustrating but we know this can’t be sorted overnight.”
