The death of a British man in Barcelona is not being treated as suspicious, Spanish police have confirmed.

Sam Alger, 25, originally from Norfolk, died after a night out in the Spanish city last month.

He had last been seen outside the Elrow club on 19 June. His body was found on nearby farmland two days later.

Police in Barcelona said results from an autopsy showed his death was not suspicious and its investigation had now closed.

The force has not revealed the details of the post mortem examination.

Mr Alger was from Necton, near Swaffham, and had studied at Easton and Otley College in Suffolk.

He had played for Dereham Town Football Club and had been working for a football association in Qatar in the Middle East.

Friends and former teachers described him as "one of the kindest lads you ever met" and news of his death was "devastating".
