A British tourist who went missing over the weekend was eaten by a shark, it has emerged - after his severed hand was found inside the beast.

The 44-year-old British national from Scotland had been swimming off the holiday French island of Reunion, near Madagascar, when the attack took place.

'The tourist and his wife were spending a week on the island and he had gone out swimming in the Hermitage Lagoon, off Saint-Gilles, alone on Saturday,' said an investigating source.

'When he did not get back, his wife sounded the alarm, and a full search was launched, involving boats and a helicopter.

'Divers searched around a coral reef in the area, and there were also patrols on land involving sniffer dogs. Sadly, the man could not be found.'

This week a shark which was seen swimming near tourist beaches was killed because he was considered a threat to holidaymakers.

Autopsies were carried out on the shark and four other fish, and a severed hand wearing the wedding ring of the British holidaymaker was found.

'It is feared that the hand belonged to a tourist who was reported missing on Saturday afternoon by his wife,' said the source.

There are frequent shark attacks around Reunion, which is in the Indian Ocean, some 500 miles from Madagascar.

Tiger sharks have a record second only to Great White sharks for attacks on humans, but it may be that the man drowned and his corpse attracted the fish.

Scientists Find New Crustacean Species Living In Whale Shark's Gills

  Scientists Find New Crustacean Species Living In Whale Shark's Gills Japanese scientists have discovered a new species of crustacean in the gills of a shark, according to a recent paper. Amphipods make up an order of nearly 10,000 species that live in aquatic habitats. They’re mostly scavengers, feeding on decomposing skin, poop, and other leftovers. Some are associated with animals like sea turtles and cetaceans. This is the first one found on a whale shark, the largest fish species in the ocean. I cannot imagine that this relationship feels very good for the shark.

DNA tests are due to be carried out on the hand, but scientists from the CSR Shark Safety Centre on Reunion have been told that the wedding ring on it 'conformed to one identified by the man's wife,' said the source.

The dead Tiger Shark was more than 10ft long and was one of five considered a threat to those in the sea.

Swimming and other water activities are heavily restricted in Reunion due to the high risk of shark attacks.

In May, a 28-year-old surfer had his leg ripped off by a shark, and his dead body was later found floating in the port of Saint-Leu.

It marked the 24th shark attack and the 11th fatal one reported on Reunion since 2011.

This led to the local government urging caution in the sea, citing the risk of bull shark attacks amid shifting temperatures.
