LONDON: -- The son of a British family brutally beaten while on holiday in Thailand has vowed never to return to the country after their horrifying ordeal.


Lewis Owen, his mother Rosemary, 65, and 68-year-old father, also called Lewis, were out celebrating Lewis senior’s birthday when they were set upon by at least six people.

Police refused to show the family the CCTV footage of the shocking attack, which happened as the family made their way home after visiting a bar in the beach resort of Hua Hin, because it was 'too violent'.

The video was later posted online by officers in a bid to trace the suspects - and Thai police say they have arrested six people.

The police refused to show them the CCTV footage. Good thing there is a site called You Tube they can access from any smart phone.

Numpty.

What a great opportunity for Myanmar or Vietnam to offer this family a week paid holiday after this ordeal. Boost their numbers and get new British tourists.

It is a shame that it took so long for this to be on Thai mainstream TV like it was today. it certainly shows that the media is a powerful tool. it is sad that this wasn't shown earlier. This has obviously tarnished Thailand reputation as the land off smiles and although there are many wonderful people here, there certainly is a mob mentality, that I would like to see eradicated.

Yes. Let this be a warning to tourists not to push, slap and punch Thai guys because they can be brutal when provoked.

an utterly disgraceful attack on elderly tourists by angry young Thais who lose some 'face' I can understand some anger and abuse but to carry on the cowardly attack after the couple were on the floor was beyond any explanation or apology and any Thais try and help?

"If found guilty, the perpetrators of this incident will face full justice under Thai law...'The men say they are sorry and that they wouldn’t have done this if they weren’t drunk.' "

Well, they apologized. All is forgiven. That IS full justice under Thai law...Even if the victims weren't farang.

What? You were expecting someone to take responsibility and be accountable for their actions? TIT....The land of "It wasn't me".

Yup, they will be transferred to inactive positions so hard they won't know what hit 'em.
