Relatives of a Birmingham man who died after being run over by a driver on drink and drugs in Majorca say they are desperate to return him home.

Father-of-two Adrian O'Kane was on a stag do in Magaluf at the weekend.

He was returning to his hotel in the early hours of Sunday when he was hit by a driver whom the local council said tested positive at the scene.

Mr O'Kane, from Birmingham, did not have travel insurance, say friends fundraising to bring his body home.

A page on the JustGiving website has already raised more than three times the £8,000 originally hoped for.

Mr O'Kane's sister, Stephanie, said: "The holiday was booked by others and he would never have thought about the travel insurance side of things.

"He was a very easy-going, lovely, lovely man. He loved a laugh.

"It just should not have happened. He's not even a big drinker, he was on his way home.

"Everyone is in complete shock. We're devastated."

Any money leftover from the fundraising efforts will be given to Mr O'Kane's two daughters, Stephanie said.

A spokesperson for Calvia Council in Majorca said: "The driver was arrested after testing positive for drink and drugs at the scene "

The Foreign & Commonwealth Office said: "We are supporting the family of a British man who sadly died in Majorca on 23 April and are in contact with the local police."
