The body of a second Newcastle United football fan who was killed in the MH17 disaster has been identified, the Foreign Office said.
Newcastle United super fan John Alder, 63, was travelling to New Zealand with his friend Liam Sweeney, 28, to watch their team play pre-season friendlies when the Malaysia Airlines flight was shot down in the Ukraine five weeks ago.
A Foreign and Commonwealth Service spokeswoman said: "We can confirm the positive identification of another British victim of flight MH17, John Alder. "The family have been informed and our thoughts are with them at this difficult time.
The crash claimed the lives of all 298 people on board.
