  Man killed in suspected croc attack
Updated 17 April 2002, 16.59

A British man is thought to have been killed in a crocodile attack in a river in Indonesia.

Richard Shadwell, 35, from Surrey, was last seen alive on Sunday when he was swimming at a national park in Borneo.


A man swimming nearby had felt something under the water and called to Mr Shadwell to get out, but he disappeared beneath the surface of the water before he could make it to the shore.

'Deeply shocked'

Mr Shadwell's family were informed of his disappearance on Monday and are said to be "deeply shocked".

Mr Shadwell had been travelling in Indonesia since March and was in Borneo to visit the national parks.
