The woman, who has not been identified, was discovered alone in a parked car near Las Teresitas in Tenerife, a nudist beach that is popular with swingers and `people who enjoy watching or engaging in outdoor sex (an activity known colloquially as “dogging”).

The woman was gagged with tape,  her wrists tied up with cable ties and she was struggling to breathe.

According to local media on Tenerife, the woman told police that she “did not have a partner” and had been “trying to recreate an S&M scene from 50 Shades of Grey” –  a hugely popular erotic novel trilogy by E L James that was turned into films starring Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan.

The alarm was raised after a passer-by heard a continuous blast on the car horn.

Another witness said they had heard the car horn beeping on and off for around two hours but when they went to investigate, someone was already helping her.

Police said she was “close to suffocation” when she was found.

Tenerife closes island as coronavirus infections soar but will still allow tourists

The government of the Canary Islands have decided to ban non-essential travel to the island of Tenerife from Friday after a recent surge in infections.

Regional president Ángel Víctor Torres announced the “tough measures” late Wednesday and said the island would be close off to all but essential travel from Friday at midnight.

He said that for a period of two weeks, travel between municipalities on the island should be avoided, that  social gatherings would be limited to six people from a maximum of two households, and the curfew would be brought forward to 10pm.

But while the decision appeared to derail the plans of thousands of holidaymakers who have booked to travel to the island for some winter sun over Christmas, a clarification came from the island’s Health Ministry explaining that tourists were exempt from the ban.

Those already on the island will be allowed to stay on and return home as planned, while new arrivals, both from mainland Spain or elsewhere, will be welcome if they have proof of accommodation booked and a negative Covid-19 test taken within the previous 72 hours.

A spokesperson from Jet2 which is operating holidays to the island said:

“We are aware of news reports regarding Tenerife closing its borders to holidaymakers. We can assure customers that we have received confirmation from the Canaries Government that this is not the case.  Holidaymakers can still travel to Tenerife to enjoy Christmas and their well-deserved holidays in the sunshine.

“Given this welcome update from the Canaries Government, alongside the current FCDO travel advice, we are operating our flights and holidays programmes to Tenerife as normal.”

The cumulative incidence rate over 14 days on Tenerife has soared to 226 cases per 100,000 people from 137 cases a month ago, above the average across Spain which just topped 200.READ MORE:
