Britons holidaying in Jamaica are being warned to be careful when using dating apps on the island.

In an update to its travel advice, the Foreign Office said there have been some violent incidents, including armed robbery, murder, rape and sexual assault, ‘including the specific targeting of tourists and visitors’.

“You should take care when using dating apps in Jamaica especially those used by the LGBT community,” it added.

“Criminals have used apps to lure foreign visitors into meeting in public spaces and later assaulting and robbing victims. You should maintain a high level of personal safety awareness, including at popular events.”
