The Italian Carabinieri police confiscated the car after blood tests at the boyfriend, 21, showed evidence of cocaine and cannabis use, reports in the local media.

The boyfriend is now allegedly under house arrest on suspicion of murder, according to the Italian news agency ANSA.

The car apparently crashed at about 7 o'clock this morning when the couple returned from a night out.

The woman died immediately, while the driver was taken to the nearby hospital with only minor injuries.

He reportedly drove with his partner, who had been living in Sorrento for some time and worked in an ice cream parlor, back to his grandfather's house.

The vehicle was described as an Opel Corsa, the European name for an Opel Corsa.

The police in Massa Lubrense, part of the city of Naples, are now investigating the Brit's death.

Sorrento is known as a tourist destination with views over Naples, Mount Vesuvius and the Amalfi coast.
