Families demand more help from Foreign Office

A family from the Scottish Borders are part of a protest in London demanding more help from the foreign office when British people die abroad.

Julie Sheppard's son Andrew Watt was found dead in a country lane in France, close to where he was living in 2010.

French investigators said he died from heart failure but Julie and her husband Les, who live near Selkirk, say information about his death has been kept from them.

They are hoping to convince British officials to help them find the answers they need.
