A police photographer is being cross-examined in the trial of two men accused of murdering Michaela McAreavey in Mauritius.

Harris Jeewooth was the first person to capture the scene in the hotel room, three hours after she was killed while on honeymoon in January 2011.

The defence team has accused him of "catastrophic errors" in failing to photograph relevant items in the suite.

Hotel workers Avinash Treebhoowoon, 30, and Sandip Moneea, 42, deny murder.

The daughter of Tyrone gaelic football manager Mickey Harte was found dead at the luxurious Legends Hotel.

It is the third day of the trial at the Supreme Court at Port Louis in Mauritius.

Michaela's husband John McAreavey is not allowed to attend the proceedings because he is being called as a prosecution witness, but his sister Claire and Michaela's brother Mark Harte are there.
