France murders: Crime scene 'like a film', says cyclist

The cyclist who discovered the bodies of a British family who had been shot dead in their car in the French Alps has told BBC News that the scene he stumbled across was like "something out of a Hollywood film".

Saad al-Hilli from Surrey was killed alongside his wife and mother-in-law last week. A French cyclist who was passing by was also shot dead.

In his first interview since the incident, the man who discovered the bodies, Brett Martin from East Sussex, told the BBC how he found seven-year-old Zainab al-Hilli near the car, stumbling around and bleeding.
