David Bolam, British hostage held in Libya, freed

The release of a British teacher held hostage in Libya since May has been welcomed after he returned to the UK.

David Bolam was "safe and well" after his release, the Foreign Office said.

It is thought the 63-year-old's release was secured by local political factions and that money changed hands.

Richard Galpin reports.
