Second body found in Indian river tragedy
5:21pm Sunday 27th May 2012 in News
A second body has been found after two British men, including Ian Turton, of York, went missing during a trip on a river in India.
Ian Turton, of Huntington, York, and Michael Easton, from Holland Park, west London, died after disappearing during an excursion on the Cauvery River, near Bangalore.
Mr Turton's body was discovered earlier this week. On Saturday the Foreign Office said a second body had now been found. It said it was providing consular assistance to the families of both men.
The 497-mile Cauvery River runs across three southern Indian states, including Tamil Nadu, where Mr Turton is reported to have been working for US company Tenneco Automotive. The two friends are understood to have set out on the adventure on Saturday May 19 but failed to return and the emergency services were alerted last Monday.
