Hotel death fall wife back in UK
The Hogan family

The wife of a man who fell from a hotel balcony in Greece with their two children is back in the UK being comforted by friends and family.

Natasha Hogan's husband, John, 32, is facing a possible murder charge after his son, Liam, six, died in the fall.

The couple's two-year-old daughter, Mia, suffered a broken arm, but was later discharged from hospital.

The family, from Bradley Stoke near Bristol, were on holiday in Crete when the incident happened on Tuesday.

Mr Hogan and his two children fell 50ft from a fourth floor balcony at the Petra Mare Hotel in Ierapetra, on the south coast of the island.

Police guard

Mrs Hogan, 34, and Mia, returned to the UK on Friday morning.

They are said to be staying somewhere in the west of England, but their whereabouts have not been disclosed.

A Foreign Office spokeswoman said on Friday that Mr Hogan faced arrest on suspicion of the murder of his son and the attempted murder of his daughter.

He has undergone surgery for a broken arm and leg and chest injuries at University General Hospital in Heraklion.

A Greek embassy spokesman said it could be days before he was fit enough to be interviewed as a result of his injuries.

He remains under police guard at the hospital.
