Body of man killed in Greece in 2018 is returned home to UK

The body of a man who was murdered in Greece has arrived back home in Manchester after a two-and-a-half-year legal battle.

Lee Robinson, 41, was stabbed to death on the streets of Athens in December 2018. His family in Manchester were only told of his murder 16 months later after a DNA match on the Interpol database. By then he had been buried in an unmarked grave, as the Greek authorities had been unable to identify him.

The family had lost touch with him three years before his death. Before he went to Greece he had been sleeping in hostels and on the streets of Manchester on and off after a breakdown.
