An IT director has been named as the eighth British victim of the Sri Lanka terror attacks.

Lorraine Campbell, 55, from Manchester had arrived in Colombo on business and was staying at the Cinnamon Grand Hotel when the bombings struck.

Her son Mark Campbell, 32, told the DAily Mail: "I have been told it is her although she has got to be formally identified.

"I know it is my mum. She has been taken from us in a terrible way."

She had relocated to Dubai and was last seen having breakfast with a colleague before a bomber calmly waited for food before detonating a device.

Husband Neil Evans has flown to Colombo to help identify her.

All eight British victims have now been named.

Two British teenagers were killed after escaping one of the first blasts in Easter Sunday's Sri Lanka attacks - only to be killed by a second bomb.

Dr Bradley's brother, former Labour MP Lord Keith Bradley, said: "She was truly a bright light in many people's lives.

"The light may have been cruelly distinguished for no reason or justification, but she will always live in our hearts and the memories she provided will be forever cherished. I, and my family, will miss her more than words can articulate."
