Britons dead or missing in Egypt

Eleven British tourists have been confirmed dead in the bombings that killed at least 88 people in the Egyptian resort of Sharm al-Sheikh on 23 July.

Keri Davies, 29, from Fareham in Hampshire, was staying at the Ghazala Gardens Hotel, which was destroyed by a car bomb, with his American girlfriend Kristina Miller, 26. She also died in the attacks.

They were taking a holiday before starting a new life together in Australia.


Hannah Lloyd, 16, who suffered severe burns in the blast and was airlifted to Cairo, then to the UK, died in hospital on 8 August.

Her sister Georgina, 14, suffered serious leg injuries and is still receiving treatment.

The sisters, from Evesham, Worcestershire, had been staying at the Ghazala Gardens Hotel with their mother Heidi.

Valerie Bracci, 70, of Canvey Island, Essex, and her daughter Lesley Ayers, 50, of from Littlebury Green in Basildon, Essex, were staying at the Ghazala Gardens Hotel.

Mrs Bracci's sons, Peter and Christopher, jetted out to Egypt scour the bomb sites in the hope of finding their mother and sister, who were both former Blackpool landladies.


Matthew and five of his relatives were on holiday together at the Egyptian resort.

He died one day before his 18th birthday.

Matthew's family, from Hinckley, Leicestershire, had thought he was safe in a different town but later discovered he had returned to the hotel shortly before the explosions with friends he had made there.

Mr and Mrs Bentley chose Sharm al-Sheikh for their first family holiday for five years as a last-minute 16th birthday treat for her son, David, and his friend, Charith, 17.

Mrs Bentley, 43, is originally from Pontypridd, south Wales - but she had been living with Alan, 49, and David in Grantham, Lincolnshire.

Her brother, Peter Langton, from Rhondda, said: "Initially we got told that they might have gone on a safari trip for four days, so the hope was that was the time that they went and maybe the tour guides were not in touch with each other."

He added: "It was tragic way to die. She's a victim of war."


Annalie Vickers and Jeremy Lakin
Both sets of parents handed out photos of the couple in Egypt

Jeremy Lakin, 28, and Annalie Vickers, 31, were staying at the Hyatt Regency Hotel.

Mr Lakin, who is originally from Nottingham, and Ms Vickers, from Northampton, were out on the last evening of their week-long diving holiday when the bombers struck.

Staff at the hotel became concerned about the couple when they were among 20 to 30 guests who did not show up for breakfast the morning after the bombings.

The couple's parents travelled to Egypt the day after the attacks to search for them.
