The brother of a woman injured after she was shot twice in the Tunisia beach massacre has spoken of his pride at her courage.

Allison Heathcote, 48, from Felixstowe, Suffolk, is in critical condition in hospital after being shot twice while on the beach at Sousse on Friday.

On a facebook post, her brother Simon Boon spoke of his pride at her courage as she fights for her life but described feeling helpless.

I love Allison with all of my heart and would do anything for her, however here I am feeling helpless.

This post is nothing more than a way of showing the immense pride I feel for the courage she has shown firstly laying on a beach having been shot twice and secondly now fighting for her life after surgery.
