    A British woman who answered the phone at the sports bar and grill identified locally as the place where it had occurred said: “I’m sorry but we’re not allowed to say anything.”

    The most severe reactions to wasp stings are referred to as anaphylaxis.
    It occurs when your body goes into shock in response to wasp venom.

    A Sunday cyclist died in a freak accident in Spain last April after swallowing a bee while out on a bike ride with friends.

    Local reports at the time said the 59-year-old went into cardiac arrest after the insect stung him in the throat and he suffered an allergic reaction to the poison in the sting.

    He was on the CV-505 running between the towns of Algamesi and Albalat, around an hour’s drive north of Teulada-Moraira, in the neighbouring province of Valencia.

    Police could not be immediately reached to confirm reports the woman at the centre of the latest tragedy was British.
