A British grandmother was strangled and beaten to death by her Tunisian boyfriend, an inquest heard today.
Pauline Richardson, 64, had travelled with a friend to the resort of Port El Kantaoui in Tunisia in June 2008.
She was due to fly back on June 29 and on that day visited Qabeel Jabir Al-Wardani, who was then in his 20s.
Mrs Richardson missed her flight home and her body was discovered the next day.
Al-Wardani was arrested and admitted pre-meditated murder, saying he had strangled the grandmother from Bishop Auckland, County Durham.
