Shafilea Ahmed's sister talks of 'relief'

Shafilea Ahmed's sister has told a court it was a "relief" to tell police after seven years that her parents had murdered the teenager.

The 17-year-old went missing from her home in Warrington, Cheshire, in 2003 and was found dead six months later.

Asked why she had kept quiet for so long, Alesha Ahmed said: "I think it was not until I went to uni that I saw how wrong family life was."

Iftikhar, 52, and Farzana Ahmed, 49, both deny murder.
