A British woman on vacation in Spain with her boyfriend claims she was raped by three men, just half a mile away from her holiday home.

The gang rape took place in Spain's Costa del Sol in the early hours, Mail Online reports.

The 31-year-old had had an argument with her boyfriend as they were partying in the popular Puerto Marina area in the southern town of Benalmadena.

The woman walked out of the club alone and started walking towards the holiday home she was sharing with her boyfriend, according to a report in La Opinion de Malaga.

The woman had initially hired a taxi to go back home, but after she felt sick in the cab, the driver forced her to get out of the car and she had to walk the rest of the way.

It was when she was passing through a tunnel beneath a busy road that she was attacked by the three men, she said.

She described the men as Arabic. According to the victim, one of the men was about 70 while the other two were significantly younger.

The men allegedly grabbed her and took her to a secluded area. One of the men held her down while the others took turns to rape her.

After the assault the woman walked to her apartment but was not able to gain entry or contact her boyfriend as all her belongings were taken away by the rapists.

A passerby found her collapsed on the ground outside her apartment, and called police. She was taken to the central hospital.
