Parents to sue charity over daughters' drownings

The parents of two young volunteers who died after being swept out to sea have said they are taking legal action against the charity which organised the placements.

Alice Barnett, 19, and Summer Robertson, 21, died when they were overpowered by fierce currents off a beach in South Africa in 2014.

Alice's parents Suzie Barnett and Pete Gallagher, and Summer's parents Sarah and John Robertson spoke to Victoria Derbyshire.

The Victoria Derbyshire programme is broadcast on weekdays between 09:00 and 11:00 on BBC Two and the BBC News channel.
