Terry Lloyd's daughter visits where he was killed

A ITV documentary has followed the daughter of ITV News war reporter Terry Lloyd as she retraces his final steps in Iraq as part of her deeply personal search for the truth about the circumstances surrounding his death.

Terry was killed in southern Iraq ten years ago, along with cameraman Frederic Nerac and translator Hussein Osman, after their convoy came under attack by the US Army.

Cameraman Daniel Demoustier - who was driving the vehicle carrying Terry when they were initially fired upon - survived.

Chelsey Lloyd has returned to where he was shot dead, along with Daniel and presenter Mark Austin, who was also in the country covering the start of the war.

“I need an understanding of what happened that day because I wasn’t there and because it was so far away," she said.

"I need to piece together the events of those days to create a kind of timeline, a picture in my head, to help me.”

Who Killed My Dad? The Death of Terry Lloyd is on ITV at 10.35pm tonight.
