The Ettrickbridge family of the man whose body was returned from France missing body parts is to demonstrate outside the Foreign Office.
The body of Andrew Watt, 31, was discovered 140 miles from Paris, in September 2010.
His mother, Julie Sheppard, pictured, has been campaigning to see all the official information held by the authorities ever since her son’s death.
She and her family will now be among more than 100 people from families in similar situations, who will travel to London for the demonstration on October 9.
The French authorities concluded Andrew’s death was due to ill-health, but Mrs Sheppard believes medication for her son’s paranoid schizophrenia was a contributory factor.
Lawyers are now also in the midst of a legal attempt to force the Foreign Office to disclose any remaining information it holds, while an online petition, started by Mrs Sheppard, now has 27,000 signatures. The London demonstration is aimed at keeping up the pressure on Foreign Secretary William Hague over the death of Andrew and other UK nationals.
“There is a lot of anger over this,” Mrs Sheppard told us. “We’ll have a large banner with us bearing more than 20 photographs of all those who have died overseas with the names of the countries where they died.
“I’ve felt for a long time that families in the same position need to get together as a group to get answers.”
