Irish Sunday Mirror - - NEWS - BY TANYA DUTTA in Arugam Beach, Sri Lanka

THE body of a Bri­tish man killed by a croc­o­dile in Sri Lanka will be flown home this week.

For­mer school friends who were stay­ing with Paul Mc­clean, 24, are ex­pected to ac­com­pany his body after they left the East Beach Surf Re­sort.

Fi­nan­cial Times re­porter Paul, of Thames Dit­ton, Sur­rey, had just had a surf les­son when he was at­tacked be­side a la­goon.

Surf in­struc­tor Fawas Lafeer said: “He went to the toi­let along the bushes. He was just me­tres from the beach but was be­hind rocks so no one saw him go into the wa­ter.”
