A British tourist was found dead after going to a Full Moon Party on Koh Phangan Island in Thailand while on holiday with friends.

Stewart Middleton, 25, was travelling with 10 others when he suffered a nasty fall and is believed to have fatally bumped his head on Koh Phangan island.

Thousands of tourists flock to the all-night parties held on the beach, where they paint their faces with luminous paint and drink from buckets of alcohol in what has come to be known as a backpacker rite of passage.

Stewart, a keen rugby player from Powys in Wales, was taken to hospital but couldn’t be saved.

He had timed his trip to be able to attend the outdoor full moon parties which took place around February 23 2016.

A Foreign Office spokesman said: ‘We are providing support to the family of a British national who died in Koh Pangan, Thailand, on 25 February.’

    I have been visiting khophangan on a fairly regular bases for the last 12years never for the full moon parties main reason to visit family when here I like the water go diving to sail rock like the jungle tracks water falls etc I’ve noticed that you don’t get dogs running out at you as much as I did when I first came here so that’s a great improvement .but I feel I have to make a statement on the amount of rubbish left on just about every beach I went on the more secluded the more rubbish and obvious sign that anything is going to be done about it .fast forward just 20years and the situation will be out of control if not already your government tourist board has to do something tourists do not want to see this make it illegal to leave rubbish behind .it is disgusting and spoils a beutifull Island .
