MH17 victim's nephew says 'their dignity has been lost'

The nephew of a British man who died on downed flight MH17 has said scenes of victims' bodies being thrown onto trains in Ukraine were "tough to swallow" as "their dignity has been lost".

Jordan Withers told Good Morning Britain he was still unsure whether the body of his uncle, Glenn Thomas, was on the train travelling to Kharkiv, whether his remains would be identified.

He said: "We still don't know if it's on that train ... We just want to know if Glenn's body is going to be coming back to us as soon as possible and then we can begin the grieving process.

"It's just been such a whirlwind, we've had no time to reflect or grieve or mourn, and I don't think you can actually do that until you get closure on what has happened."
