EastEnders' Gemma McCluskie 'killed after sink row'

The brother of former EastEnders actress Gemma McCluskie beat her to death after a row over an overflowing sink, a court has heard.

The 29-year-old actress thought it was the "last straw" when her brother Tony McCluskie left the taps on at the flat they shared, the Old Bailey heard.

The prosecution said she wanted her brother to move out.

Mr McCluskie, 35, of Shoreditch, east London, has pleaded guilty to manslaughter but denies murder.
