Brit, 53, died in diving accident in Tenerife hours before Valentine's Day meal to mark 32nd wedding anniversary

Andrew Littler, 53, got into difficulties off the coast of Abades, Tenerife, last Thursday afternoon.

He was pronounced dead after unsuccessful attempts to revive him on a pier in the holiday resort of Abades in the south-east of the sunshine island.

His wife Lesley was still on the island today, and a GoFundMe appeal had been set up to repatriate him to Coalville, Leics.

The appeal has already collected more than half of the £4,000 target

Pal Andrew Toher said: “So shocked to hear the news. He was a top bloke that would do anything to help. Thoughts and prayers to Lesley and the family.

Another added: “Andy was more like a brother to me rather than a friend. He was always there when the going got tough."

Mr Littler was said to have worked as a transport driver but was a well-known local DJ.

An investigation into his death is under way.
