Around 1,200 people have been forced out of their homes by a forest fire raging in Ibiza.

Some 150 firefighters were battling to control the blaze yesterday, which threatened to engulf the exclusive Roca Llisa development on the south of the island.

Police ordered residents to leave the area, near the town of Santa Eulalia, in the early hours and, while emergency services appeared to have the fire under control today, fire crews were keeping a close eye on the scene in case the fire reignited.
