Greek police hunting the murderers of the British tourist Wendy Sullivan on Rhodes have arrested a suspect and are looking for an accomplice.

The police on the island refused to confirm the identities or nationalities of the two suspects, but the arrested man is believed to be Ukrainian and the second man is thought to be from Moldova.

The battered body of 25-year-old Ms Sullivan of Northwich, Cheshire, was found dumped in a forest a mile from the resort of Faliraki in north-eastern Rhodes on Tuesday morning.

She had been strangled during a frenzied attack after a night out in the town.

A post-mortem examination showed that Ms Sullivan, who was half-way through a two-week holiday with a female friend, had died of asphyxiation about two hours before her body was found.

Police have questioned several people after reports from witnesses that she was seen getting into a car with strangers.
