UK police release identity of young man who died in Malia

(Daily Mail )– A gifted sportsman from a top public school died after an assault outside a club on Crete as he awaited his A-level results.

Harrow pupil Archie Lloyd, 18, was punched in a drunken row in Malia, a notorious party town, and hit his head on the ground, Greek police confirmed.

After refusing treatment, he returned to his hotel by cab in the early hours, and was found dead by friends soon after.

Mr Lloyd, who turned 18 last month, travelled to Crete earlier this month for a holiday with friends to celebrate leaving the £36,000-a-year school, where he played for the school’s 1st XI in cricket and football.

He was staying in Sissi, around four miles from Malia.

Sebastian Trabucatti, 22, from East Grinstead, West Sussex, has been released on bail charged with ‘gross negligence leading to manslaughter’.

Trabucatti, a promoter and male model, denies causing the death after the incident on August 6 outside Cloud Nine nightclub

A Foreign Office spokesman said: ‘We can confirm the death of a British national on August 6. We are providing consular assistance to the family.’

Malia is notorious for its nightlife, with thousands of Brits flocking to the resort for cheap booze and all-night partying every summer.
