Beth Anderson, 24, and Izzy Squire, 19, were travelling in South East Asia in February last year when they tragically drowned in fast-moving water along with their friend, Christian Sloan, 25, at a popular waterfall spot. Now, a year on from their deaths, parents David Squire and Tracy Dodd are determined to get the full story about the mysterious circumstances surrounding their daughters' deaths as new information into what happened has been revealed. Reports at the time of the girls' death on February 26 suggested they were taking part in a dangerous activity such as zip-lining, or had wandered off from a tour group and were with an unauthorised guide.

The parents of two sisters who drowned in Vietnam have promised to find out the truth about their deaths.

Beth Anderson, 24, and Izzy Squire, 19, fell into fast-moving water near the Datanla waterfall, in the Da Lat region, in February 2016.

Their friend, Christian Sloan, 25, also drowned.

Initial reports suggested they may have been using an unauthorised guide and taking part in dangerous activities.

But new information received by South Yorkshire Police has revealed they were on an official tour.

‘Information has come to light that contradicts the initial media reports made about the events,’ said David Squire, 50, who was step-dad to Ms Anderson and dad to Ms Squire.

‘They in turn were quite contradictory at the time. None of that, it appears, actually happened.’

He now plans to get the full story, along with the mother of the girls Tracy Dodd.

Mrs Dodd, 54, from Sheffield, added: ‘The rubbish that they had gone off where they shouldn’t have done and off the guided path just wasn’t true.

‘This month has been like a countdown. It’s strange, because Sunday is the date, but for me it will be Friday, because I was getting ready for work when I got a phone call.’

Mr Sloan’s family revealed it could take British police three years to conclude their findings but they were making progress on his death investigation.

The police are acting on behalf of South Yorkshire Coroners’ Office and are trying to get enough information to hold an inquest.

Detective Chief Inspector Steve Whittaker, who is overseeing the investigation into the death of the two women, said: ‘South Yorkshire Police are currently working to gather as much information as possible that will inform and assist Her Majesty’s coroner in a further coroner’s inquest.

‘This is a tragic incident that has seen the loss of three young lives in terrible circumstances.’

A Foreign Office spokesman added: ‘We continue to provide support to the families of three British people following their deaths near Da Lat, Vietnam in February 2016.’
