The body of a holidaymaker fom Norfolk who was brutally murdered together with a fellow tourist in Thailand has returned to the UK, her family said.

Hannah Witheridge, 23, was found with severe head wounds next to David Miller, 24, on a beach on the island of Koh Tao on Monday.

Her family said today (Sunday) that they had travelled to Bangkok on Tuesday to bring their "beloved Hannah" home and find out more about the investigation.

"We can confirm that we have now returned to the UK with our beautiful Hannah.

As a family we feel enormous relief to have Hannah back at home where she belongs.

We continue to work closely with officers to assist in the investigation and bring those responsible to justice.

Our family is broken and require time to grieve in private - as do Hannah's many friends. With the support of our fantastic family liaison officers we will make further statements as required and when we feel able.

As such, we would be very grateful for time and privacy to try and come to terms with our devastating news."

Meanwhile, police in Thailand said they are investigating new evidence suggesting that the murders may have been due to "sexual jealousy".

A spokesman for the Royal Thai Police said that the force was also looking into claims that the pair had a row with a Thai man in a bar before they were killed.

"We have discovered fresh evidence which could lead to a new suspect who may have had a relationship or one night stand with Hannah or one of her friends or David the night before they were killed.

We have asked the Metropolitan Police to go back and make enquiries of Hannah's friends on this matter.

The liaison officer here in Bangkok is working on getting that statement. The faster we get it, the faster we may be able to get the bad guy.

No lines of inquiry can be ruled out and we believe these crimes could have been motivated by sexual jealousy.

Police have been made aware of reports that Hannah and David had a fight in a bar with a Thai man before they were killed, but cannot confirm if they are true."

– Police Colonel Kissana Phathanacharoe

Post-mortem examinations revealed that Ms Witheridge, from Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, died from head wounds while Mr Miller, from Jersey, was killed by severe blows to the head and drowning.

Save the Tesco One: Campaign successful as bird freed

A supermarket's long-running attempt to get rid of a bird which had taken up residence in one of its stores is over.

Wildlife presenter Chris Packham today tweeted pictures to show that the Wagtail which had made the Tesco store in Great Yarmouth its home had been captured.

The store made national headlines when it confirmed reports it would have to shoot the bird after repeated attempts to trap the bird failed.

But the news sparked a social media campaign led by Mr Packham which led to Tesco working with the British Trust for Ornithology to catch the bird.
