Meredith's family welcome retrial

The family of former Leeds student Meredith Kercher say they hope a retrial gives them justice. Yesterday, an Italian court announced that Meredith's housemate Amanda Knox and her ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito will face a retrial for her murder.

Meredith died in 2007 while studying in Italy as part of her degree from Leeds University. Meredith's sister has said she hopes the retrial will clear up some of the confusion they have about what happened to her.
