A woman and her two children, a couple originally from Manchester and a pair of teenage siblings have been named among the eight Britons who were killed in the Sri Lanka bombings that have claimed at least lives. Anita Nicholson, a year-old lawyer based in Singapore, her son, Alex, 14, and daughter, Annabel, 11, died when a suicide bomber detonated a device in the breakfast queue at the Shangri-La hotel in Colombo. Ben Nicholson, 43, the only one of his family to survive the attack, confirmed his wife, daughter and son had been killed while sitting at their table for breakfast on Sunday morning. Anita was a wonderful, perfect wife and a brilliant, loving and inspirational mother to our two wonderful children.
