A mans body was found on the Camino La Estercolada in the municipality of Tegueste by the Anaga Forest, late last night (Friday).

The Coordinating Center for Emergencies and Security (CECOES) received an alert just after 10.00pm, for the discovery of the lifeless body of a man.

They immediately activated emergency services and sent them to the area, but SUC paramedics couldn't access the body due to the precarious location and difficult access of the area.

Firefighters managed to reach the man and were able to recover him to a safer area, but unfortunately health professionals could only confirm his death.

At the moment the causes of death is unknown, although the Guardia Civil and the Local Police have already opened an investigation, and are asking anyone with any information to come forward.
