A British man who has died after a "train accident on the metro" in Paris.

Nye Frankie Newman, who passed away on New Years Day, took part in the sport of free running - which involves dodging and jumping round obstacles in inner-city environments.

However Newman's running group, Brewman, has said Newman wasn't "train surfing" at the time of his death.

Tributes were paid to Newman, from Guildford, describing him as "enthusiastic," "inspirational" and "an incredible human being who was always up for anything," ITV reported.
