The body of a six-year-old boy who was killed when his father plunged with him from a hotel balcony in Greece is being flown back to the UK on Sunday.

John Hogan, 32, is facing a possible murder charge after his son, Liam, died and his daughter, Mia, two, was injured during the fall in Crete.

The family, from Bradley Stoke near Bristol, were on holiday on the island when the tragedy happened on Tuesday.

Mr Hogan's wife, Natasha, 34, and Mia returned to the UK on Friday.

Undertaker Hristos Papadopetrakis, who runs a funeral parlour in Rethymnon, Crete, confirmed Liam's body would return on Sunday.

Police guard

Mrs Hogan and her daughter are said to be staying somewhere in the west of England, although their location 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.

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.

The father 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.
