A South African courtroom has been shown CCTV footage from the hotel where Shrien Dewani was staying, showing the moment the Bristol businessman found out that his wife, Anni, had been murdered.

In the footage, Mr Dewani can be seen walking down the hotel corridor towards his hotel room.

The whole time he is walking he holds his head in his hands.

Once he reaches the door to his hotel room, Mr Dewani appears to hand his room key to a man before entering the room.

Mr Dewani denies five charges, including murder and kidnapping.

 The trial, which is listed to last until mid-December, continues.
