The police said this week that the man who died on Sunday 5th August was Antonio Bernabe Ramirez, aged 64, but did not disclose any further details about his background.

A spokesman said: “There are no suspicious circumstances and, as with all sudden deaths, a report will be sent to the procurator fiscal.”
