A 15-year-old British boy has died after an incident involving a speedboat off a Greek island.

Toby Finnett, reported to be the son of Aon oil executive Paul Finnett, was killed off the island of Paxos.

According to The Times, Mr Finnett was driving the speedboat when Toby fell off the back and became caught in the propeller blades.
