Backpackers murdered by Thai police officer in row at restaurant

Two British backpackers were shot dead by an off-duty Thai policeman near the site made famous by the film The Bridge on the River Kwai. In the early hours of yesterday, the couple – Vanessa Arscott, 23, and Adam Lloyd, 25 – got into an argument at the S&S restaurant, a small riverside eating place near Kanchanaburi, 80 miles north-west of Bangkok, Thai police said.
