Two Brits have died and a further two have been taken to hospital after a “jeep safari accident” in Turkey.

The Foreign Office said it had been made aware of the incident near Fethiye.

The BBC said reports had suggested the vehicle had crashed into a telegraph pole.

It is thought the group, who were travelling in an open-top Jeep, were returning from a day trip to the Saklikent Gorge.

Three Turkish nationals, one of which was the driver, were also in the vehicle at the time and were injured in the crash.

The Foreign Office said it was providing consular assistance.

A spokesman said: “We are aware of a jeep safari accident near Fethiye in Turkey involving four British nationals, two of whom have died and two of whom have been hospitalised.”
