An Iraqi migrant has drowned trying to swim to England wearing an improvised buoyancy aid made of plastic bottles.
The unnamed manâ€™s body was found at a wind farm off the coast of Zeebrugge in Belgium.
He was identified using fingerprints and officials said they thought he had been refused asylum in Germany.
West Flandersâ€™ governor Carl DecaluwÃ© added: â€˜We think he was going to try to swim to the UK.
â€˜I think he was starting in France.â€™
