A Romanian man returned from his holiday to find he had lost his job because he had been declared dead.

Valentin Lefter, 20, from Focsani, said he was shocked because he'd only been away for two weeks.

When he rang company bosses, they apologised and said the letter had been sent out because of a computer error.

But they said he could not have his job back because they had already employed someone in his place, reported local media.

He now plans to sue the company for 10,000.
