The body of Sarah Groves, who was stabbed to death in Kashmir, has been transported back to her home island of Guernsey.

The 24-year-old was formally identified by next of kin after her body arrived in the island on Saturday.

Guernsey Police said inquiries were ongoing as preparations were being made for an inquest in the island.

A force spokesman said further information about the investigation was expected from the Indian authorities.

Ms Groves, a former Blanchelande College student, worked in the gym at Guernsey's Old Government House Hotel before leaving to travel in India two months ago.

Her body was found on a houseboat hotel in Srinagar on 6 April.

Indian Police reported that Dutch national Richard de Wit, who is in his 40s, had confessed to killing Ms Groves.
