Women's Institute members in pirate mix-up

A group of Women's Institute members from Devon got more than they bargained for when they dressed up in costume for a talk about piracy.

The guest speaker was in fact Colin Darch, a former ship's captain held hostage by Somali pirates for 47 days in 2008.

"They were more embarrassed than me," said Mr Darch, 75.
