Newlyweds die in quad-bike accident
Monday 08 August 2011
A British couple were killed in a quad-biking accident while on their honeymoon in the Maldives, police on the holiday island said yesterday.
Jonathan and Emma Gray, from Halifax, West Yorkshire, were found injured on Saturday by the side of a road at the Kuredu Island Resort and Spa, where they were staying. Mr Gray was in his twenties and his new wife was 25.
A third person was also injured in the crash and was in hospital last night. The Maldives Police Service said officers were investigating what happened. A manager at the Kuredu resort refused to comment while the police investigation was ongoing.
The Foreign Office in London said: "We are providing consular assistance and liaising with both the police and the local authorities."
