Real Story reveals the plight of terrorism's forgotten victims in the first programme of a new series.
Ms Vickers and Mr Lakin had been on a diving holiday
Since the events of 9/11 more than 40 British holiday makers have been killed in terrorist attacks around the world and scores more received serious injuries.
However, the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority only compensates victims hurt in the UK.
Fiona Bruce talks to some of the families left to fend for themselves and puts their problems to Home Office Minsiter Fiona McTaggart.
Some have had to rely on charitable donations to pay for their child's funeral.
BBC ONE, Monday 13 March
We follow Trevor Lakin who lost his son Jeremy in the bombings at the Eygptian resort of Sharm el Sheikh and tell the story of a family from Durham whose lives were devastated by an attack on a bus to a Turkish beach.
Following the London bombs there was huge public sympathy for the victims' needs. Seriously debilitated survivors have claimed for payouts of up to £500,000.
But for those caught up in bombings abroad there is nothing.
