A man from the North-East of England has died after falling through a plate glass window at the New Year’s Eve party on Koh Phangan.

Kevin Liddle, 23, from Gateshead, died from cuts he received during his fall.

He was travelling with three friends who he was enjoying the party with before he crashed through the window of the shop in Haadrin Beach.

He was pronounced dead by medical staff at the Bandon Clinic on the island.

Thai Police said foul play was not suspected. A Haad Rin police spokesman said his three friends, also Britons, had been interviewed. The spokesman said: “They said it was an accident.” Police named the friends as Joseph Tate, John Henderson, and Andrew Petch, all from Sunderland, who were allowed to leave the island for Koh Samui the next day.
