A man from Essex has been found dead in a car park in eastern France.

John Napoletani, from Colchester, was on his way back from Italy with his wife and a friend when they stopped in Dole near Dijon on Saturday night.

The Foreign Office said it had been informed of the death and was offering "consular assistance" to the family.
