The body of Liam Sweeney has been identified, one of two Newcastle fans involved in the MH17 Malaysian Flight tragedy.

Liam’s family released a statement through Northumbria Police confirming the positive identification of the body.

The statement read;

“We are happy and relieved to be getting Liam home and hope that we can move forward.

“Our thoughts are with John Alder’s family and the families of the other 296 victims.

“We would ask that we are given some time privacy to grieve as a family.”
