Siddiqi murder: How a family can cope with such a loss

Two men will be sentenced this week for the murder of student Aamir Siddiqi in a bungled contract killing in Cardiff, but the family's pain continues.

Speaking outside court after Jason Richards and Ben Hope were found guilty of killing Aamir, Umbareen Siddiqi, 17, said her brother was the "heartbeat" of his family.

Dr Michael Issacs is a Consultant Psychiatrist at The Maudsley Hospital, in London - and an expert on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

He spoke to Gareth Lewis on BBC Radio Wales, but first is part of Umbareen Siddiqi's statement.
