hocked British neighbours of a family who were brutally murdered in the French Alps have described a "lovely" Iraqi couple who were often seen taking their children to school. More than a dozen police stood on Thursday outside the large detached house in Claygate, a leafy residential district of Surrey to the southwest of London, owned by the al-Hilli family, the presumed victims of Wednesday's attack. French police sources have confirmed that 50-year-old Saad al-Hilli, an Iraqi-born businessman who lived in Surrey with his family, was one of the four people found dead in a forest car park near the village of Chevaline.
