The bereaved parents of a Briton killed in the Egyptian terror bombings have accused the Government of neglecting the victims.

John and Angela Corke claim they have had little assistance since learning 31-year-old Annalie Vickers died in the blasts in July.

Mr Corke, of East Dean, near Eastbourne, said reform needs to be made to compensate victims of terrorist atrocities.

The Corkes believe compensation should be available for terror victims overseas as well as victims of domestic attacks such as the London bombings.

However, the Home Office said the Government was not liable for injuries which occur from criminal acts abroad.

A spokesman said compensation must be sought from insurance companies or the state where the atrocity happened.

The Corkes are angered at the lack of Government response to the death of Annalie, an ex-student at Moira House School in Upper Carlisle Road, Eastbourne.

Mr Corke said: "We received no letters, no phone calls, nothing.

"Only denials and documents saying it was nothing to do with us."

Annalie and her 28-year-old boyfriend Jeremy Lakin were killed on the final night of a week-long diving holiday in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el Sheikh when three car bombs exploded in the market area.

Mrs Corke said: "We flew out full of hope but that was dashed within five minutes of speaking to the consulate."

They traced their daughter's last movements with help from the British embassy and finally brought her body home.
