Woman Dies After Night Out In Bulgarian Resort

A British woman has died and several others have been taken to hospital after a night out in a bar in a Bulgarian ski resort.

Nina Holmes, from Gorseinon, Wales, collapsed outside BJ's bar in Borovets, around 45 miles from the capital Sofia.

Police launched an investigation after eight other revellers needed medical treatment.

Ms Holmes' boyfriend, Dean Herbert, is expected to fly back to the UK with her body.

Writing on Facebook, he said: "Sleep tight my babes, promise you're coming home."

Many of Ms Holmes' friends posted tributes to her online.

Steve Thomas described her as funny, beautiful and happy, writing: "I am deeply saddened she is no longer with us."

Hayley Ravenscroft added: "Watched you grow from a lovely little girl to a stunning young lady now.

"A beautiful angel, you are gonna be missed by so many in and out of showland. Keep doing what you do best and rock heaven."

South Wales Police said it was aware of Ms Holmes' death and would be working with Swansea coroner Philip Rogers once her body had been repatriated.

A spokesman for the Foreign Office said it was providing consular assistance to her family "at this difficult time".
