A British man accused of murdering his son when he jumped off a hotel balcony is being taken back to Crete to stand trial.

John Hogan plunged from the fourth floor with 6 year old Liam and his daughter Mia during a family holiday in 2006.

Liam died after suffering massive head injuries but his 2 year old sister survived with a broken arm.

The 34 year old has been held in Greek jails for sixteen months.
