Luke Walker's family reacts to sentence

The father of a Midlands man convicted of killing his girlfriend on the holiday island of Crete has told ITV News Central their family will struggle to move on.

Luke Walker, 25, has been handed an eight-year suspended sentence on the condition that he pays 10,000 euros in bail money.

The Black Country man was found guilty of GBH leading to death after Chelsea Hyndman died on May 17, 2010.
