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, Sussex, could have fallen into the city's extensive network of canals and waterways.
