Alan Henning's wife receives plea for life
The family of British hostage Alan Henning has received an audio file of him pleading for his life.
In a statement, Mr Henning's wife Barbara said Islamic State "continue to ignore our pleas to open dialogue".
She said: "He was working with Muslims to help the most vulnerable within Syria. Nothing has changed. He went to Syria to help his Muslim friends deliver much needed aid."
Mr Henning, a taxi driver from Eccles in Salford, was delivering aid when he was captured in Syria in December.
