He was on a week-long ski break with friends and had spent the evening of March 30 in the Social Bar – a venue that is extremely popular among British visitors to Flaine.

“The deceased’s body was found late in the evening lying by a road nearby,” said an investigating source, who released a picture of Patrick F.

“Efforts were made to revive him, but he was declared dead at the scene. 

“We are appealing anybody who might have seen him on the night of March 30 – a Wednesday – to come forward.

The source added: “The aim is to try and piece together the circumstances leading up to this tragic death.”

Gendarmes from nearby Scionzier are carrying out enquiries in the area, and the investigation is being led by prosecutors and an examining magistrate.

A UK Foreign Office spokesman said: “We are supporting the family of a British national who died in France and are in touch with the local authorities.”
