One of the men on trial accused of murdering Slough cyclist Kyron Lee left the UK days after the victim's death, travelling for almost a year across several countries before being arrested upon his return to Britain.

Elias Almallah, 22, of Eltham Avenue, Slough, and Fras Seedahmed, 19, of Surrey Avenue, Slough, stand charged with murder over the death of Lee, 21.

Lee was hit by a stolen car in Earls Lane, Slough, on October 2, 2022. The group of assailants inside then chased him down the street with machetes and stabbed him to death.

Almallah and Seedahmed are accused of being part of the group who carried out the stabbing.

They both deny the allegations, and are on trial at Reading Crown Court.

Yesterday (March 12), prosecuting barrister Christopher Hewertson revealed that Almallah left the UK on October 4, just days after the killing of Lee.

He went to Madrid, where he remained only briefly before moving on to a number of other countries.

Mr Hewertson said: "He wasn't in Spain very long, because three days later he entered Turkey via Istanbul International Airport.

"He remained within Turkey, as far as we're able to determine, for just under two months. He left Turkey - by a different airport, in fact - and flew to Cairo, and entered Egypt."

Almallah returned to the UK in July 2023. Police had been informed, and he was arrested upon arrival at Heathrow Airport.

The trial continues.
