“Our brother bravely volunteered to go to (Ukraine) as a medic to help save lives in this war torn country.

“In the line of duty, helping others he lost his life. This selfless man is currently stranded in a morgue in Ukraine and there is no help to get him home.”

She said it would cost around £4,000 to bring his body back to the UK.

“He gave his life to save others and he needs to come back home to have the service he deserves. A true hero’s service surrounded by his family and friends. Please, please help to bring our hero home.”

As of Wednesday evening, the GoFundMe had exceeded its target, raising £4,590.
