Beach Death Man ‘A Diamond Lad’

A young footballer whose body was found on a Newquay beach was described as an “absolutely diamond lad” by the manager of the football club he played for.

Wayne Brown, manager of Leonard Stanley FC, in Gloucestershire, described Luke Griffin, 20, as a “top guy” and “happy go lucky”.

The body of the Young Player of the Year, from Leonard Stanley Football Club in Gloucester, was found on Newquay Beach on Saturday morning.

Two men, aged 41 and from Bedford, who were arrested after the death have been released without charge.

A statement said: “Police have now ruled out third-party involvement in the death and are not treating the death as suspicious.”
