A group of five tourists were injured in a terrifying speed boat explosion in Tenerife that flung them into the sea.

No nationalities have yet been released, but the four women and one man, aged between 25 and 45, were all taken to hospital with various injuries.

A spokesman for the 112 emergency control centre said the casualties were rescued from the water following the explosion earlier today off the popular marina of Puerto Colon in Costa Adeje.

The vessel which ignited is understood to have been a fibreglass pleasure boat.

The flames and thick plumes of black smoke were visible for miles around as holidaymakers watched from the beaches of nearby Playa de las Americas and Los Cristianos.
