Scarlett's mother says daughter was murdered

In an interview with ITV News West Country, the mother of Scarlett Keeling - the North Devon teenager killed in India - is demanding a fresh investigation into what she says was the murder of her daughter.

Sunday will be the fifth anniversary of Scarlett's death. Two men are on trial for lesser charges similar to manslaughter. But Fiona MacKeown says Scarlett was murdered on a beach in Goa and has no faith that the much-delayed trial will reach the truth.

She says a pathologist's report proved that Scarlett died after being held underwater, and did not drown merely because she had been left drugged on a beach. You can watch Seth Conway's full report on ITV News West Country at 6pm.
