Four Brits caught trying to parachute off a Benidorm skyscraper have been told they face fines of up to £265,000.

Town hall chiefs in the Spanish seaside resort holiday destination say the thrill seekers were planning on filming their stunt and posting footage on the internet.

They were stopped on Saturday morning by local police as they prepared to jump off a skyscraper in the popular holiday resort Torre Levante.

The 393-foot, 36-storey building, was Benidorm’s tallest until 2002.

They were able to outsmart and outrun security guards who spotted them as they scaled metal scaffolding around the temple before having to abort their climb to avoid arrest.

Police launched an investigation the day after the footage was posted online.

Benidorm is known as Little Manhattan because of its tall buildings.

The 692-foot Intempo skyscraper is now the town’s tallest building.
