A court in Thailand has sentenced two migrant workers from Myanmar to death for the murder of two British tourists on the holiday island of Koh Tao.

A judge found Zaw Lin and Win Zaw Htun guilty of murdering David Miller and Hannah Witheridge in September 2014.

Both men initially confessed but later retracted their statements, saying they had been tortured.
