Body Of Missing Man Found In Canal

The body of a man who went missing during a night out earlier this month has been recovered from a canal, it has been reported.

Wayne Davies, 22, a tourist, disappeared after leaving the Hifi nightclub in the Dutch city of Leiden in the early hours of 19 April.

The alarm was raised the following day by his mother when he failed to return home to the UK.

A spokesperson for the Foreign Office said: "We were notified of the death of a British national on April 26 in the Netherlands. We are providing consular assistance to the family at this difficult time."

Police believe Mr Davies, from Sussex, may have fallen into the canal. He had been staying at the Golden Tulip hotel in Leiden with two friends.
