The wife of a plumber from Otley is preparing to fly out to Greece in order to support him through his trial. Fran Prenga is accused of armed robberies in Athens but insists he is innocent and a victim of mistaken identity.

His wife, Louise, joins him next week and says she will stay by his side until his trial is over - and hopefully his name cleared.
