They were in a rented buggy on the mountain, which is the island’s highest peak and a popular destination for holidaymakers.

Rescue crews had struggled to get to the pair because the area was too remote.

The Brits were later declared dead at the scene and their bodies eventually removed from the ravine.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office confirmed the pair had died while in Santorini.
