A British father-of-three broke his jaw and both arms after being chased by a gang in Spain and then thrown off a cliff.

Steen Nodwell, 29, also had a fractured eye socket and skull, a shattered cheekbone, internal injuries and more.

He was on holiday with friends and family in the coastal town of Salou when he was chased by a group of men on Friday night, sources say.

After they caught up with him, Steen, from Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, said the gang attacked him and then threw him off a cliff.

His sister Bethan says he is now stranded in a Spanish hospital in the nearby town of Tarragon and has required multiple surgeries.

They will be covered by his Global Health Insurance Card but he will not be able to fly for over a year due to his injuries.

He now faces a journey of over 18 hours by car and his family is trying to raise money for “reasonable travel with medical assistance”.

On a GoFundMe page, his sister Bethan says: “Steen is a strong and determined man and this incident shows that.

“A band of local men chased my brother and after brutally attacking him, they threw him off a cliff.

“It was only through sheer determination and courage that my brother was able to get up and get help despite his life-threatening injuries.

“Had he not done that, the outcome could have been tragically different. These men tried to kill my brother and now we need your help.

“Steen has two broken arms, one of which is a compound fracture, a broken jaw, a fractured eye socket and skull, a shattered cheekbone, internal injuries and more.”

Bethan says that not only does her brother have to pay for proper transportation, but he also needs help and support from his family, which could mean “travel costs are going to increase soon.”

“Whether you help with a penny or a pound, every little helps. Or even a part of this fundraiser. Our family appreciates it all,” she added.

“Anyone who knows my brother knows his strong character, I have no doubt he will handle that better than anyone I know. But let’s make ourselves as comfortable as possible.«

Bethan told ITV News West Country: “The biggest concern is the broken skull and eye socket. They want to operate in Spain first.

“He has a shattered cheekbone, a broken jaw, two broken arms, internal bleeding and needs to be seen by a neurologist to determine more.”
