The mother of Shafilea Ahmed has told a court that she saw her husband attack their daughter on the night she disappeared.

Farzana Ahmed, 49, and her husband Iftikhar, 52, both deny murdering the 17-year-old at their Warrington home.

Describing the night of 11 September 2003, Mrs Ahmed told Chester Crown Court: "My husband was hitting Shafilea. He slapped her twice".

Shafilea's body was found in Cumbria in February 2004.
