Ayrshire dad found dead in Polish river during stag


An Ayrshire dad has died after an apparent drowning in Poland.


The body of 54-year old William Higgins from Mauchline was noticed by passers-by in the Polish River Oder on Saturday morning.

Mr Higgins only arrived in Poland on Friday on his son's stag night.

Robbery has been ruled out as a motive as he still had his ID and passport.

The Foreign Office have confirmed they are providing full support to a family following the death of William.

Tributes are being paid to the Ayr United supporter on social media - comments include "He was a gem of a man" and "Always helpful, such a tragedy"

Ayrshire Daily News give full thoughts to family and friends.
