Corfu deaths: Family's 'shock' at ITV News revelations

The family of two children killed by carbon monoxide poisoning on holiday in 2006 have expressed their shock that the two men found responsible for the deaths were still working in the holiday industry until earlier this week.

In a statement, the family said:

We are shocked that the manager and an electrician who were convicted for our children’s deaths were still as of this week working in the hotel industry in Greece.

We ask that Thomas Cook, the Louis Group and other Tour Operators acknowledge that this latest blow for the family is simply unacceptable and cannot be repeated. British holiday makers need to be reassured by the Travel and Tourism Industry that they will be kept safe on holiday.

– Family of Christi and Bobby Shepherd

They also reiterated calls for the bungalow where the children died to demolished and replaced with a playground dedicated to their memory.
