Family of Brit killed in Ukraine appeal for return of body

The nephew of one of the British victims of the Ukraine plane disaster said the family is anxiously waiting to hear when they will get his body back. Jordan Withers, whose uncle Glenn Thomas was killed in the crash last Thursday, said the uncertainty was making their pain greater.

He told ITV News Reported Ben Chapman the family want the body home, and want an investigation into what happened as soon as possible after that. He said:

"The blame game should not even come into it yet. Let's just get the bodies back and then we can have an investigation and justice can take its course, after that."
