Murder-accused husband criticises police

A man who was imprisoned for 16 months after being accused of murdering his Welsh wife, has criticised South Wales Police over their handling of the case.

Collette Davies, from Bridgend, was found dead at the bottom of a ravine in a remote part of India during her honeymoon with John Clifton Davies in 2004. Mr Davies was arrested seven years later and charged with murder and fraud, but was cleared of all charges last month.

He told this morning's Daybreak that his time in prison was "horrendous", said "a lot of questions have to be asked" about South Wales Police and that his lawyers are "looking serious" into what steps he can take now.
