A British man has been stabbed to death in the holiday resort of Ayia Napa in Cyprus.

The 22-year-old, who has been named as George Low, died from a stab wound to the neck in the party town on Sunday.

Police in the country said another Briton, also 22, was wounded during the pre-dawn knife attack.

The two were attacked while they were walking down a busy street, Famagusta district assistant police chief Georgios Economou said.

The other man suffered four stab wounds to his back which are not life-threatening.

A spokesman for the UK's Foreign Office said: "We are providing support to the family of a British national who sadly died in Cyprus on 14th August and will remain in contact with the local authorities who are investigating."
