A young woman has died after plunging 164ft while taking a selfie on a cliff near the bridge that featured in the opening sequence to the James Bond film ‘Skyfall’.

Hatice Nur Karabulut, 21, was taking a picture with her cousin Mazlum Sozeri, 26, at the Varda Viaduct, Adana, Turkey, on Monday when disaster struck.

Shortly after 5.30pm Hatice is said to have lost her balance, and Mazlum desperately tried to grab a hold of her.

Emergency service teams were called to the scene by witnesses, and workers used a crane to winch the cousins from the spot where they had fallen.

Hatice was pronounced dead at the scene, and her body was taken for a post-mortem in the city of Adana while her cousin was taken to a hospital in the provincial capital by ambulance.
