brother Darren, 32, before they became separated.

CCTV footage shows him being grabbed by the arms and bundled

 down an alley by at least two men in the early hours of Tuesday.

undergone a number of life-saving operations.

Dwayne, Darren and mum Doris, 51, had been in Marmaris only a

another operation.

TWO British holidaymakers have drowned within hours of each 

other while swimming off the Turkish coast.

Anthony Gissing, 55, and Martin Webb, 69, died in separate 

incidents less than three miles apart after getting into trouble. Both

Webb was at the nearby resort of Oludeniz.

Local police were not treating either death as suspicious. A Foreign 

Office spokesman confirmed both deaths and said consular 

assistance was being provided to the families.
