The two tourists, who suffered second degree burns, have gone home after staying for several days in the burns unit in the Malaga regional hospital of the Axarquia.

The pair, a man, 51 and a woman, 48, were on holiday in the Malaga region when after ordering a plate of flambéed chorizo in a Nerja restaurant, they noticed it was not hot enough and asked for more alcohol for the burner; this then blew up.

The ambulance took them to the hospital where they were transferred immediately to the burns unit due to the seriousness of their injuries.

They burnt a total of 20% of their bodies including their shoulders, faces, hands and chests.
