"We live this everyday," says nephew of MH17 passenger ahead of trial

Families who lost loved ones in the Malasian Airlines Flight 17 crash are travelling to the Netherlands today as the trial of four suspects begins tomorrow.

The flight was shot down over Eastern Ukraine in 2014, all 298 passengers onboard died - including Glenn Thomas from Blackpool

His nephew Jordan Withers told our reporter Sarah Rogers his uncle's death affects his family every day.

Four men with links to the Russian military will go on trial on Monday in the first criminal case over the murder of 298 people on board Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, which was shot down over Ukraine in 2014.

However, the men are not expected to attend court in the Netherlands and the trial is likely to go ahead without them.

An official inquiry found the Boeing 777 was hit by a Buk missile launched from an area of Ukraine controlled by pro-Russia separatists.
