holiday in the French Alps five years ago today,


says he's frustrated with the lack of progress in the investigation.


The bodies of his brother, his wife, mother-in-law and a French cyclist


Zaid al-Hilli described the French investigation into the murders


Our Home Affairs Correspondent Nick Beake is here with more on this.


And this is a story that shocked many people here in the UK.


Lots of people might remember this, the family holiday that ended in


brutal murder. Five years on it remains a mystery. The bodies of


Saad al-Hilli, his wife and her mother were found in a deserted road


in a forest near Annecy in France. Also a cyclist was killed during the


attack. One of the daughters, just four years old at the time, was


discovered hiding under her mother's body in the car and an older sister


was found with serious head injuries after being shot and beaten, but she


survived. We are now hearing that Saad al-Hilli, his brother from


Surrey has been talking about the French police investigation and says


he is deeply frustrated by it. From the beginning, they handled


the whole case very badly. The investigation itself was based


on conjecture rather And that's why the whole


thing has failed. Zaid al-Hilli himself was treated as


a suspect for a time by police before being told he wasn't going to


be charged because there was no evidence. There was speculation


about a family feud, was it something to do with Mr al-Hilli's


work as a satellite engineer? Five years on we are no closer to finding


out who was behind these dreadful murders five years ago.

Govia Thameslink, which runs Southern Rail, operates several car


parks in the south east, and says it is only "targetting

They say the best way to stop them is through the courts and not


clamping. 20 youth clubs in the capital


are set to get funding of more It's hoped the government money


will help youngsters from disadvantaged areas build


confidence through improved sports, The money's part of a ?40 million

the London Duck Tours' yellow Well, in a few weeks,


after 15 years they're Making way for the construction


the Thames Tideway Tunnel, otherwise known


as the Super Highway. Sonja Jessop hopped on board


for a final goodbye. These bright yellow Duck Tours


have been turning heads We do regard ourselves with being


an iconic product of London. One of the great benefits we bring


to London is that other So they don't have it in Paris


or in other European countries. The tours will stop


because they won't be Thames Water is taking it over


to build a new super sewer. It says it's vital to remove tens


of millions of tonnes I'm afraid we have looked


at lots of alternatives. We have worked collaboratively


with Duck Tours. We have tried to push back the time


as long as possible until such time as they had to stop their operations


but there is really no practical, safe alternative


to the one we have now. These amphibious trucks were first


made in the US in the 1940s. Many of them actually


served on D-Day and in You can tell a bit of its American


history because, look, the driver is actually sitting


on the wrong side. More than 1.8 million passengers


have travelled on London Duck Tours Although services were suspended


for a time in 2013 when one For many passengers this


was a special trip, especially for Emma and her son Oliver,


who has cancer. We had a big fund-raising effort


to raise money for Oliver's bucket list and this is the first thing


we have been able to do When we found out it was closing,


we moved his treatment around and the doctors made it possible


for us to come to London John hopes the Duck Tours


might return one day. But in the meantime,


what will become of the vehicles? We are considering


working in Portugal. We have also been looking, we've


been asked to look at Loch Ness. But they set sail on the Thames


for the final time later this month. Kate Kinsella's here with rest


of the day's weather. It's quite warm, surprisingly,


despite the cloud we have today. This was earlier this morning. A bit


of low cloud, murky out there with light and patchy rain, but overall a


dry morning. It has been rather humid. At six o'clock this morning


we started at 17 Celsius in central London. Very mild. Some patches of


blue sky and a bit of sunshine, heating things up a bit more. This


afternoon, more of the same, dry and rather cloudy. But we are hanging


onto the humidity. You might get a little bit of rain, one or two


showers ahead of a cold front head in our direction. If you get the


brightest spell, that could spark off a heavy shower here or there,


but not everywhere will see them. Temperatures likely to reach 20 or


21 Celsius. Feeling quite sticky, as it did overnight. The cold front


moves across us this evening. That will introduce cooler and fresher


air behind it. It will not be as sticky tonight as it was last night.


11 or 12 is the minimum temperature. It leads the way to a chilly start


tomorrow morning, but a brighter one. We will have spells of sunshine


with cloud bubbling up as we head further through. The temperature


tomorrow is similar, but it will feel fresher, we will lose the


humidity and looking at a maximum of around 20 Celsius. Similar on


Thursday, before turning more unsettled and rainy on Friday.


Riz Lateef will be here with our 6:30 evening programme.


But for now, from us all, a very good afternoon.


I don't take well to people who lie to me.
