The four Brits who started a massive fire at a Magaluf hotel after trying to give a sleeping pal a rude awakening by burning his feet using a lighter and aerosol have been named.

The tourists were named locally as Brandon McCahill, 21; James Brown, 21; Lauren Smith, 19; and Georgia James, also 19.

Light - BH - Mallorca - Hotel - Fire

It was not initially clear whether they had intended setting light to the BH Mallorca Hotel or started the fire during a drunken prank.

Two floors of the hotel had to be evacuated - and seven tourists trapped on balconies rescued by firefighters - after the fire broke out around 8pm on Sunday.

Damage - Blaze - £125 - Rooms - Operation

The damage caused by the blaze has been estimated at around £125,000. Two rooms were totally destroyed and the operation to put the fire out lasted for about an hour.

Brandon is a keen amateur footballer from Consett, County Durham, now thought to be living in Newcastle.

Left-footer - Star - YouTube - Videos - Skills

The left-footer is the star of several YouTube videos where he can be seen showing off his skills on an indoor five-a-side pitch as well as outside on a full-size pitch.

He describes himself on social media as single and admits to being a fan of LADbible.

Facebook - Posts - Life - Man - Floor

One of his recent Facebook posts, titled 'Ahhh living the life' shows a man lying face-down on the floor with his bare bottom exposed and his trousers round his ankles.

James Brown, known to friends as Jay, is also believed to be from the same town in County Durham as Brandon.

Footage - Scene - Brits - Lives - Smoke

Footage from the scene showed terrified Brits running for their lives as thick black smoke and flames engulfed one of the apartments.

Holidaymakers could be heard screaming to others 'Get out' over the sound of breaking glass.
