A young British couple have died after their rented buggy fell into a 200m ravine on Santorini in Greece.

The man and woman (both 26) reportedly lost control of the vehicle on Sunday while driving on Profitis Ilias mountain, reports Metro.

The peak is the highest point on the island and popular with holidaymakers.

According to Daily Mail, rescue workers struggled to reach the couple, who were later declared dead at the scene and their bodies removed.

The foreign and commonwealth office are assisting the families and are in contact with Greek authorities, according to a spokesperson.

Another driver reportedly died at the same spot last year and locals have described the road as a "death trap".
