The Foreign Office has said it is supporting a family after two British sisters were taken to hospital in Mexico after being attacked by a crocodile while swimming in a lagoon at night.

Twins Melissa and Georgia Laurie, 28, were swimming in Manialtepec Lagoon, near Puerto Escondido about 450 miles (724km) southeast of Mexico City.

Crocodile attack: British family's fears as saved twin gets sepsis

Melissa and Georgia Laurie, 28, were swimming in a lagoon near Puerto Escondido, Mexico, when Melissa was dragged underwater by the reptile.

Georgia punched the crocodile and saved her sister, who is now in a medically-induced coma in hospital.

But their older sister says Melissa's situation is "still really serious" and "we're not relaxing just yet".

Hana Laurie told BBC Breakfast that bite wounds to Melissa's stomach and legs had become infected.

"She has now developed sepsis," she added.
