A British traveller has died after falling from a plane door onto the runway of a Turkish airport.

Staff at Dalaman Airport, in southwest Turkey, were trying to remove the 30-year-old from the flight when he fell from an exit.

The man, named locally as Andrew Paul W, landed on the concrete below and was knocked unconscious.

An ambulance took him to a nearby private hospital where he was found to have broken ribs.

He died a short time later. Police are investigating.
