The wife of Roger Pratt has said that she has been touched by "considerable kindness from people" after her husband was murdered off the Caribbean island of St Lucia.

Margaret Pratt told the St Lucian government information service that the couple had felt safe in the area before armed men boarded their yacht off the town of Vieux Fort on Friday.

A post-mortem examination has shown that Mr Pratt was bludgeoned and drowned.
