At the time of Robert Brown's sentencing Mr Platt-May read out a statement on behalf of the boys' mother, Louise:

"My heart is broken - my heart is broken and time will never heal this. I love my boys with all my heart, and they will never be forgotten."

Mr Platt-May was found dead in a hotel room in Corfu, Greece during the early hours of Thursday 17th May.

His death is not being treated as suspicious. His family has been notified and the matter will be passed to the coroner.

Our condolences go to the family who have asked for the media to respect their privacy at this difficult time.
