Pair convicted for murder of Norfolk backpacker in Thailand appeal their death sentences

Hannah Witheridge was killed alongside David Miller.

Two Burmese migrant workers - convicted of murdering Norfolk backpacker Hannah Witheridge in Thailand - have appealed their death sentences.

Miss Witheridge, from Hemsby, was killed alongside fellow traveller David Miller in September 2014.

The two men found guilty of their murders say they were tortured into making false confessions by Thai police.

Wai Phyo, also known as Win Zaw Htun, and Zaw Lin have denied killing David Miller and Hannah Witheridge on Koh Tao in September 2014.

Mr Miller's family said "justice" has been delivered after the men were sentenced to death for the killings in December 2015.

His brother Michael, flanked by parents Ian and Sue, said outside court that the "correct decision" had been reached.
