A SCOTTISH toddler has drowned in Spain after he plunged into his neighbour's swimming pool.

His expat father Duncan Lamb - who is from Uddingston, Lanarkshire - is understood to have found toddler Theo in the pool.

Paramedics raced to the scene, at the family's Costa del Sol home, and spent around 40 minutes trying to save the boy's life.

However, there was nothing they could do to save him, after he was discovered around 10.45am on Monday in an area known as El Coto.

Theo is understood to have lived there with his father and mother, Alison, who is believed to be from England.
