Arbroath boxer Barrie Lee dies in Ghana

AN ARBROATH man was found dead in Ghana earlier this week.

Barrie Lee (30) was working for oil and gas company Weatherford International in the African country when he was found dead by colleagues in his accommodation.

The exact circumstances of Mr Lee’s death are unclear at this stage.

He was well-known in the town for his boxing exploits in the light middleweight category. During his professional career he amassed a total of 11 wins for only two defeats and one draw.

His partner, Stacey Walker, and son Jack (5), are being comforted by family at home in Arbroath.
