A British couple have been murdered in the foothills of the Himalayas by a gang of Nepalese robbers.

Joanne Stickland, 28, of Bath, and Paul Miles, 27, of Teignmouth in Devon, who met while studying in Nottingham, were touring the Himalayan foothills on a motorcycle when they were attacked in Joshimath in the Uttar Pradesh region of India.

Two of the three killers were immediately seized by nearby workmen, but the third fled and is still at large.
