It has been confirmed a British Tourist has been washed away by waves at Praia Formosa in Funchal last Night.

The tourist believed to be about 60 years of age was photographing the waves and was here on holiday with his girlfriend.

The man ignored all warnings, and even passed the area closed off for safety protection, by the Atlantic Palms Hotel, and was dragged by a wave disappearing into the sea.

The search operation is still ongoing for the body.
