Police are investigating the tragic death of a tourist at a Gozo beauty spot.

The man, who was 68 and from Germany, had been swimming off Dwejra when he went missing for more than an hour.

His distraught son raised the alarm before he and a group of scuba divers discovered the man’s body floating in a cave.

Police said they were called to the scene at around 5pm on Thursday.

A post mortem will be carried out at Gozo General Hospital on Friday.

Dwejra is one of the most popular diving spots in Europe.

The Blue Hole and the remains of the former Azure Window attract thousands of diving enthusiasts to Gozo each month.
