Luke Rhoden, from Wigan, died on Tuesday outside the Ibiza Rocks hotel.

Rhoden, 25, is said to have fallen from a balcony and video footage has emerged showing him being pinned down by Spanish police.

Eyewitnesses claim there was a struggle between the former Wigan Warriors prop forward and officers.

He was in San Antonio for a friend’s stag do.

Now a Facebook group, set up by friends and family of Rhoden, has issued a plea for help in finding two Prestonians who may have witnessed the incident – and who could have further video footage.

Footage obtained by the British media shows 30 seconds of a struggle following Rhoden’s fall from a balcony.

But a message on te Justice for Luke Facebook page states: “Two lads from the Preston area seem to have seen everything and may possibly have more video footage.

“Please if you know anyone who’s over there or been over there this week from Preston ask them to come forward if they know anything.”

Rhoden’s father, Norman, is preparing to travel to Ibiza to search for answers into the death of his son.

A Foreign Office spokesman said: “We can confirm the death of a British national in Ibiza on 3 September.

“We are providing consular assistance to the family at this difficult time.”
