Father faces child death charges in France

A 47-year-old divorced British man living in France has been arrested on suspicion of killing his two children.

Julian Stevenson's daughter, aged five, and her brother, 10, were killed with a knife and their bodies found on Saturday at their father's Lyon flat.

He had been looking after the children over the weekend after separating from their French mother three years ago.

Christian Fraser reports.
