Man Missing After Hurricane In Mexico Is From Wolverhampton

Two Britons missing after a hurricane in Mexico are understood to be Paul Whitehouse and Simone Wood.

Paul and partner Simone Wood from London went missing when their yacht overturned in La Paz in Baja California.

It is thought Mr Whitehouse is a scuba instructor in the city of La Paz.

Hurricane Odile left a trail of destruction when it hit the Baja California Peninsula last Sunday.

A spokeswoman for the Foreign Office said: "We are in touch with the local authorities and are providing consular assistance to the families at this difficult time.''

The British Embassy in Mexico has advised British nationals in those areas of Baja California and Baja California Sur affected by the hurricane to leave through Los Cabos International airport.

The hurricane affected power and water supplies, as well as phone services, triggering widespread looting.

Power has been restored to around one-fifth of customers in the resort cities of Los Cabos, with 200 electricity workers dispatched to the area.
