A British man who was missing since the Brussels terror attack has been confirmed dead by the Foreign Office.

David Dixon, 53 from Nottingham, lived with his partner and son in the Belgian capital.

Dixon had texted a family member to say he was safe after the two explosions at Brussels Airport, but he had not been heard from after the third blast at the Maalbeek metro station.

In a statement, the family said:

“At this most painful time our family would gratefully appreciate it if we could be left alone to grieve in private.”

Seven Britons were injured in the attacks and three are still being treated in hospital.
