Lianne Smith guilty of child murders in Spain

A British woman has been found guilty of murdering her two children in a hotel room in Spain.

Lianne Smith, 45, originally from Tyneside, had admitted smothering Rebecca, five, and 11-month-old Daniel in Lloret de Mar in May 2010.

Her defence sought an acquittal, claiming she was "psychiatrically disturbed".

But the jury at the Provincial Court in Girona decided that she was criminally responsible for murdering the children.
