Matthew Cryer's family fight for justice for their son

A family who've waited five years for answers about their son's death asked again today for the government to help. Matthew Cryer from Killamarsh died on the Mediterranean island of Zante in 2008 - he was only 17 and on holiday for the first time without his parents.

The Greek police have promised to investigate but the case keeps stalling. Today Matthew's family went to the Foreign Office to push for progress.

The father of a teenager from Killamarsh near Sheffield who was killed on holiday in Greece is set to appear at his murder trial. 17 year old Matthew Cryer died from head injuries in 2008 outside a bar in Zante.

At an inquest in Chesterfield in 2009 witnesses said they saw him being thrown into the street. Earlier this month Greek police re-opened the case. Matthew's father, David, has been summoned to the trial of the men accused of killing his son.
