The trial of two men charged with the murder of two British tourists in Thailand has begun, it has been reported.

Win Zaw Htun and Zaw Lin, both 21, deny killing 24-year-old David Miller, from Jersey, and 23-year-old Hannah Witheridge, from Great Yarmouth, Norfolk.

The Britons’ bodies were found on September 15 on a Koh Tao beach.

The trial of the two migrant workers from Burma had been scheduled to begin in February, but it has been brought forward unexpectedly, the BBC reported.

At a hearing earlier this month Nakorn Chompoochart, the lawyer for the accused pair, said they had pleaded not guilty to several charges relating to the deaths.
