Adrian Underwood

An Army veteran has been named by his company as the Briton who was killed in a recent attack on a tanker off the coast of Oman.

Adrian Underwood died in the attack, an incident blamed on Iran by the US and UK which also claimed the life of a Romanian citizen.

Mr Underwood was working for security firm Ambrey at the time.

The company's managing director, John Thompson, said: "It is with enormous sadness that we announce that the British national killed in the security incident on board the Mercer Street vessel was Adrian Underwood.

"Adrian was a former soldier in the British Army with a distinguished record of service.

"Adrian will be much missed by everyone he worked with."
