Two British nurses accused of murdering a colleague in Saudi Arabia were reunited with their families at a police station yesterday.

Lucille McLauchlin, 31, from Dundee, and Deboroh Parry, 41, from Alton, Hampshire, who have been in jail for three weeks, had separate meetings with their families at Dammam, the Foreign Office said.

Stan and Ann McLauchlan, from Dundee, appeared distressed. Mrs McLauchlan was in tears as they went through Heathrow airport on Saturday. Relatives of Miss Parry, 41, were thought to have been on the same flight. The nurses were initially said to have admitted killing Yvonne Gilford but then retracted the confessions. They could face the death penalty.
