A man was yesterday found dead in the sea by Tórshavn’s western quay.

He had gone out on the town with a shipmate on Saturday night. Shortly before midnight, he returned to the quay on his own.

Divers later found the man in the water close to where Ametyst was docked.

Police say there are no indications of any crime.

He was in his early 40s and had a wife and three children in Poland. His family have been informed.
