Brit tourist ‘stabbed twice by waiter’ at Majorca restaurant in ‘row over bill’

A British tourist on holiday in Majorca has reportedly been seriously injured after he was allegedly stabbed twice by a waiter at a restaurant.

The middle-aged holidaymaker was understood to have been knifed once in the stomach and once again in the leg during an argument over the size of the bill and the quality of his food, reports say.

The waiter at the centre of the drama is also believed to have been injured after he was also allegedly stabbed by the tourist.

According to reports, the argument broke out on Wednesday around 7pm at a restaurant in Can Picafort in north east Majorca.

Majorcan newspaper Diario de Mallorca said that the emergency services stabilised the Brit at the scene after he suffered a large loss of blood.

He was subsequently taken to Son Espases Hospital in Palma and the waiter was treated in another hospital in the town of Muro.

The waiter's wounds have been described as less serious than those of the unnamed holidaymaker.

While an investigation has been launched by the Civil Guard, a statement has so far not been issued regarding the incident.

Can Picafort is described as an ideal resort for families and couples. It is a short drive from Puerto Alcudia which is popular with Brits.

It comes after another British tourist moaned she is "bored" after being stuck on a "paradise island" in the South Pacific for 18 months due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Zoe Stephens, 27, thought she was going to Tonga for a weekend trip but ended up practically marooned when the country closed its borders in March 2020.

Tonga is one of the few places in the world with zero Covid cases and, as a result, there is no face mask policy and restaurants and bars remain open.

As of now, Tonga is still closed but travel restrictions could lift on August 30 which could mean Zoe returning home to see her family.

Spain and Majorca are currently on the UK's Covid travel amber list which means those returning to the UK who have been fully vaccinated do not need to quarantine.
