The Irish Examiner reports:

The family of Nicola Furlong are planning to sue the hotel in Tokyo where she was murdered.

Returning from Japan last night, the Furlongs told the Irish Independent they will take a civil action for negligence against the Keio Plaza Hotel.

Nineteen-year-old American Richard Hinds was convicted of her murder on Tuesday and sentenced to 5-10 years in jail.

During his trial, the court heard how staff assisted Mr Hinds in putting Nicola into a wheelchair, while she was unconscious.
