Despite their efforts the youngster died shortly after.

His parents are understood to have moved to Spain from Glasgow.

A spokesman for the Foreign and Commonwealth office said: "We are aware of the death of a British national in the Costa del Sol in Spain.

"We stand ready to provide consular assistance to the family at this difficult time."
