An inquest heard how mum Nina and dad Richard were “woken to screams that a boy had been found in a pool.”

They then realised that tragic Theo was missing from their suite.

Coroner Rachel Knight was told the harrowing new details in a written report from Kos.

She adjourned the inquest until next year and released his body for a funeral.

Greek cops are investigating the tragedy and have quizzed Theo’s parents and hotel staff over his death.


The family were staying at the Atlantica Holiday Village in north Kos after enjoying a “fantastic” holiday last September.

Nina and musician Richard told friends they had such a good time they wanted to go back this year.

She told friends: “It was lush, would definitely go back there.”
