BBC to air documentary on Kirsty Maxwell and Craig Mallon
01 May 2018 @ 23:46

A TELEVISION documentary on the BBC is planned covering the death of Scottish newlywed Kirsty Maxwell in a fall from a 9th-floor Benidorm hotel.

Spanish reporter Ainhoa Urcelay is working with the BBC on the production, and says: “With a tragedy of this magnitude, many probes are launched which are hindered by the obvious cultural differences and language barriers.”

The programme, produced by STV for BBC Scotland, focuses on how Mrs Maxwell's grieving family and friends, including her widower Adam Maxwell (pictured), are coping after she lost her life on a hen weekend in the Costa Blanca holiday capital.

The documentary will also feature the parents of Craig Mallon, 26, a Scottish tourist killed with a single punch outside the Rockefellers' nightclub in Lloret de Mar (Girona province) in May 2012.

In both cases, other British tourists are believed to be involved.

Kirsty (also pictured) had gone out with her group of female friends and is believed to have entered the wrong hotel room upon her return to the resort in the Rincón de Loix neighbourhood, known locally as La Zona Inglesa, or 'The English Zone'.
