Nathan's funeral at Kirk Braddan

The funeral of a 14 year-old student from the Isle of Man who died in a swimming pool accident in Thailand will take place next week.

Nathan Griffiths was on holiday in the resort of Pattaya when it's believed he was sucked into a swimming pool vent.

Police have confirmed his body has been returned to the Island, after a post mortem showed the cause of death as drowning.

They say a full report into the circumstances surrounding the tragedy is expected from the authorities in Thailand in due course.

Nathan's mother and father are again thanking the many people who have sent letters and cards expressing sympathy, and say they have been a great help.

The funeral service will be held at Kirk Braddan at 1.30pm next Tuesday.

Nathan leaves parents Marian and Jimmy, brothers Rhys and Kevin and a sister Naomi.
