Brits under the age of 40 are more likely to die in Thailand and Cambodia than in any other overseas country.

Thailand and Cambodia had more deaths per capita than any other country, according to an investigation by the Sun Online.

Cambodia which recorded 11 deaths from 136,232 visitors in 2017, has a death rate of approximately 8 per 100,000 British visitors.

Thailand, which recorded 25 deaths of Brits under the age of 40 from 411,000 British visitors has a death rate of 6 per 100,000 visitors.

While Spain recorded the most deaths of Brits under 40 with 49, nearly 13 million Brits visit the country each year, resulting in a per capita death rate of 4 in one million.

Similarly, Australia recorded 27 deaths of Brits with a death rate of 2 per 100,000.

Data released by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office last year revealed that road traffic accidents involving motorcycles were one of the biggest causes of death of Brits in Thailand.
