Is this a matter for the British police? Since it all happened abroad, it's not clear to me that it's within their jurisditction. I'm no legal expert, but perhaps it's best we don't get carried away with ourselves here.
I agree with your fundamental point, however, that a full and transparent inquiry is essential (regardless of the outcome).
I don't feel I am getting carried away, I am just trying to stress how this could snowball. I too am not a legal expert but I think that as those named are British citizens the British police could take this up if a complaint was made. Also I guess the Austrian police could launch their own investigation.
