British tourists traveling to Spain received a travel warning from the Foreign Office.

Tourists heading to Benidorm, Alicante and the Canary Islands for a sunny break are warned by "extreme" weather.

The British are warned by the Spanish Meteorological Agency (AEMET) that issued a weather warning "extreme risk".

The agency's warning comes amidst torrential rain forecasts all over Spain.

The alarming weather forecast for the country has seen a bunch of popular holiday hot spots – from Alicante and Almeria to Valencia – issued an orange weather warning.

The slowing of the weather will cause chaos for tourists and holidaymakers, many of whom will look for sun, sea and sand.

Between 12 and 13 September, the regions will be clouded by showers. The majority of the country issued an orange weather warning.

The Foreign Office warns that tourists could be the victims of sudden floods in the area.
