    Boozed-up British tourists have to watch where they walk in Alicante after a new patterned pavement has been laid causing nausea and confusion.


    The crazy design in the Spanish holiday resort causes the eye to think that the pavement is not flat but stepped.

    Set in rows of diamonds at 90 degrees to each other, the opposing slabs create an optical illusion tricking the walker into thinking the walkway is a series of never ending steps.

    The design has been causing confusion for British holiday makers as they stumble home after night of drinking.

    Some have fallen over and others have suffered nausea.

    Ex-pat Rich Poolton, took the pictures says: 'After you've had a few drinks it definitely affects you.

    'It confuses the eyes enough when you're sober. It can have quite a substantial effect on you.

    'When you've been out it has, shall we say, a strong effect on your stomach,' added the 46-year-old.
