Lawyers in the trial of two men accused of murdering a Norfolk backpacker in Thailand will today make their closing submissions.

Hannah Witheridge, 23, from Gorleston, was killed alongside fellow traveller 24-year-old David Miller, from Jersey, on the island of Koh Tao in September last year.

Burmese migrants Zaw Lin and Wai Phyo both deny murder. They claim they were tortured and threatened by Thai authorities to make them confess to the killings.
