Mirror – Sri Lanka bombings: Grieving Brit to return to hotel where siblings died to pay respects

The suitcases containing their holiday clothes still sit unopened by the front door, the clutter of family life collecting on top.

It is more than two months now since Daniel Linsey, 19, and his sister Amelie, 15, were killed in Sri Lanka’s Easter Sunday Massacre terror attack.

Their shellshocked father, Matthew, who escaped without injury, then had to lug the bags home alone. Yet the grieving family cannot begin to unpack them.
