Williams was found in the water on Sunday between bays eight and seven at Alcaidesa Marina, where his yacht had been moored.

Local yacht owners told the Olive Press Williams would spend six months of the year in the area before heading back to the UK.

One yacht owner at the Alcaidesa lounge bar told the Olive Press: “He had been drinking in a La Linea flat with friends beforehand then came in here for a drink.

“His mate offered to walk him back to his boat but he refused.”

Police were called just after midday on Sunday and an autopsy was due to take place on Monday.

A source told the Daily Record: “There was nothing at the scene that raised any immediate suspicion that the man died as the result of a crime but the post-mortem will tell police more.”
