The body of a Sussex tourist who went missing following a night out in the Dutch city of Leiden has been recovered from a canal.

Wayne Davies, 22, disappeared after leaving a nightclub in the early hours of April 19. His mother raised the alarm the next day as he was due to return to the UK .

A Foreign Office spokesman said: "We were notified of the death of a British national on 26 April in the Netherlands."

"We are providing consular assistance to the family at this difficult time."

Detectives believe that Mr Davies, an apprentice plumber from East Grinstead, could have fallen into the city's extensive network of canals and waterways.
