London teen moved to adult prison in Greece

A teenager being held in Greece on suspicion of murder has been moved to an adult prison. Myles Litchmore-Dunbar is accused of killing Tyrell Matthews-Burton.

He was stabbed to death in a brawl outside a nightclub in Malia. Mr Litchmore-Dunbar's family say he should never have been moved to the adult prison at the age of 19.

They say the judge ruled he should be kept in the holding cells in Crete, but instead he's been moved to an adult prison in Athens - for those over 21.
