Simon Crewe, 57, of Whetstone, died in May riding on an inflatable sofa-dinghy, being pulled by a speedboat off Costa Costa beach, in Lassi, Kefalonia.

A documentary inquest held at Leicester Town Hall today heard the father-of-three, who had been looking forward to the birth of his first grandchild, sustained fatal neck injuries when another rider was thrown into the air and then collided with him.

The inquest heard how Mr Crewe was one of three men riding on the inflatable.

The coroner, Catherine Mason, recorded a narrative conclusion in which she said: "On Tuesday, 23rd May 2017, Mr Crewe chose to go on a water ride whilst on holiday in Kefalonia.

“During the ride one of the other participants catapulted in the air and then impacted with Mr Crewe.

“As a result of the impact Mr Crew sustained fatal neck injuries."
