British Portugal drowning victims named

A five-year-old British girl and her 66-year-old grandfather who drowned in Portugal after being hit by a large wave have been named.

Lara Lewis and Brian O'Dwyer were swept into the sea at the resort of Nazare, which is 60 miles north of Lisbon, at 14:00 local time on Tuesday.

They had been strolling on Salgado beach with the girl's grandmother when the wave dragged them into the sea.

Fishermen pulled them out of the water but only the woman survived.

Daniel Boettcher reports.
