Concerns were growing last night for a Northern Ireland fan who is feared missing at the Euro 2016 finals in France.

Friends of Kane Leslie appealed on Twitter to anyone who had seen him in Nice to contact Steve Hudson, who uses the nickname @hudo, on the social media site.

A friend of Mr Leslie said he had not been seen since Sunday at 2pm local time, and had been heading to a beach.

He is understood to have missed the first Northern Ireland match of the tournament against Poland.

Among those who retweeted the appeal was Calum Best, son of east Belfast football legend, George Best, and radio DJ and soccer pundit Colin Murray.

He has been reported as a missing person by his friends to the French police, according to a Portsmouth Facebook page.
