Tsunami 'victim' safe in prison

A man feared dead in the Asian tsunami disaster has been discovered safe and well in a British prison. Friends and family of Mark Steven Doogue, 47, thought he was in Phuket in Thailand on a three-month holiday. His sons Michael, 24, and Matthew, 19, from Salford, Greater Manchester, feared for his safety when he failed to get in touch following the disaster. But a police source said he is in jail after telling colleagues he was going to Thailand for three months. A Greater Manchester Police source said: "He told his boss he was going to Thailand but he is actually in prison."
