Hatfield man dies on holiday in Turkey

A SECURITY guard from Hatfield died suddenly while on holiday in Turkey.

Tony Woodland died on November 5 during a break with his wife Karen and sister-in-law Anita Dance in the Mediterranean resort of Antalya.

They had arrived in the country on Saturday, October 17, where they were staying at the five-star Titanic Hotel on Lara Beach.

Mr Woodland, 57, had complained of feeling tired and unwell, and the next day he went to his hotel room for a rest.
