First witness on scene of Alps massacre describes bloodbath

An RAF cyclist has described the moment he stumbled upon the site of the French Alps massacre last week.

Brett Martin told the BBC that he initially thought there had been a terrible accident, as he found a little girl "stumbling" around, bleeding and "moaning" in a secluded car park close to Lake Annecy.

Next to her was a BMW, it's engine still revving and its wheels still spinning, inside which lay the bodies of Saad al-Hilli, 50, his dentist wife Iqbal, 47, and her mother.

A fourth body, that of Sylvain Mollier, 45, the French cyclist who apparently stumbled across the attack, lay on the ground.

The French judge and prosecutor investigating the Alps massacre will visit the UK on Thursday too, as police search woodland huts near Annecy.
