Tributes to Briton who died 'living the dream' in Thailand


A young British tourist has died while on holiday on an island in Thailand.

Friends have paid tribute to Luke Miller, who has died in the island of Koh Tao.

His death comes just days after he posted a New Year's Eve message on Facebook in which he told how he was "living the dream".

He wrote: "Can honestly say this new year I am living the dream of to the full moon party on a speed boat drink cocktails strawberry daiquiris living life to the full yolo so let's do this."

Joanne Doe wrote: "To think we were enjoying your photos seeing you live the holiday of a lifetime. This is such a shock. Will never forget that mental Christmas party at ours! At least you were living life to the full. Thoughts are with your family right now and Erin Laird xxxx RIP Luke Miller."

A Foreign Office spokesman said: "We are providing assistance to the family of a British national who has died in Koh Tao, Thailand. Local authorities are investigating the death and we will remain in contact with them."
