Thai police are seeking two suspects over the killing of British man Tony Kenway in the resort town of Pattaya.

Police Lt Gen Jitti Rodbangyang said the provincial court has issued arrest warrants for Abel Caldeira Bonito and Miles Dicken Turner in the killing of Mr Kenway, originally from Southampton, Hampshire, as he sat in his parked Porsche.

Bonito, from South Africa, is suspected of being the gunman, while Briton Turner is thought to have been the motorcyclist who whisked him away after Tuesday's shooting.

Gen Jitti said both men have left Thailand, but he declined to say to where they had gone.

Police said witnesses and surveillance cameras had helped identify the suspects. They have suggested the killing may have been related to a business dispute.
