The tourist found dead yesterday evening in West Iceland was a 60-year-old British man, it has been revealed.

The body was found close by an abandoned hire car on the Snæfellsnes peninsula. The car was expected to be returned yesterday.

The amount of clothing and equipment found in the car suggested initially that two people were missing, but it later emerged that the car had one occupant.
