Mother of daughter who died in Crete begins giving evidence

The mother of a woman who died in Crete three years ago has been giving evidence at the murder trial of her daughter's boyfriend who has been accused of killing her.

Greek prosecutors claim Luke Walker, from Brierley Hill, murdered Chelsea Hyndman, from Yorkshire, by hitting her in the stomach at the apartment they shared in the resort of Malia.

Mr Walker says she died after falling during a night out with friends.

Her mother, Heather, was emotional as she told a court in Heraklion of the moment she found out her daughter had died.

She said she wrote to Mr Walker when he was arrested and told him he would have to 'face the consequences' if he was responsible.

Mr Walker denies murder.
