TWO MEN, believed to be Albanians, were still being questioned last night by police investigating the murder of a British couple on the Greek island of Cephalonia, writes Andrew Buncombe.

Meanwhile other Britons living on the island are said to be terrified that the culprits or their associates might still be at large. Richard Coward, a friend and neighbour of the murdered couple, Roy and Judith Eccles, said he had not been able to sleep since the discovery of the couple's bodies at their villa in the village of Kaminarata last Thursday.

Mr Coward, 52, said: "We are living in fear of what is going to happen to us. We do not know if there is a vendetta against British people or people who have retired and are enjoying life ... I have got my gun beside me. That is how most Britons are living here."

Mr Eccles, aged 55, and his 49-year-old wife sold their home in St Neots, Cambridgeshire, and moved to their retirement home in October.
