The keen rugby player from Powys was travelling with 10 friends and the group timed their trip to attend the famous Full Moon party on February 25.

Shropshire Coroner's Office told the Shropshire Star that an inquest into his death will open when his body arrives in the UK.

His friend Nick Davies wrote a tribute to Stewart on Facebook: "Gone from one of the best holidays of my life to worst in a flash.. Gone but necer forgotten r.i.p. Stewy".

Mr Middleton's sister Greta-Lee wrote: "You were truly beautiful in every way. You're my brother, my best friend, and now you're my angel! I love you!

"You were the biggest pain, but I wouldn't change you for the world! You looked after me like nobody else could, you were the first person I'd run to if I needed help, you knew exactly what to say to make everything better!"

A Foreign Office spokeswoman said: "We are providing support to the family of a British national who died in Koh Phangan, Thailand."
