The 27-year-old Briton who died in Malta last week after finding himself in difficulty while swimming was a “a warm hearted person who loved life”, friends have said.

Chris Dodd, from Runcorn, was reported to have “encountered difficulties” in a pool at Triq it-Trunċiera, St Paul's Bay at around 7.45pm on Thursday.

Magistrate Donatella Frendo Dimech is leading an inquiry.
