The mother of Bulgaria drowning victim James Kelly hopes to bring her son’s remains home today.

Lily Kelly, speaking from the Sunny Beach resort where her 25-year-old son had been on holiday with his partner, said yesterday: “People have been brilliant to me. I am hoping to take him home on Wednesday – I am not going home without him. I will know either tonight or in the morning.”

The father-of-one drowned last Wednesday soon after alighting from a pedalo.
