A British Greenpeace activist who spent two months in a Russian jail has spoken to Newsnight about his experiences behind bars and the effectiveness of direct action.

Anthony Perrett, 32, from Newport, was one of 30 people arrested during a protest against oil drilling at a Russian fixed gas platform in the Arctic in September.

Twenty-nine of them were released on bail in St Petersburg on Friday, after two months in jail.

All of those detained still face possible trial on hooliganism charges.

Emily Maitlis spoke to Mr Perrett from St Petersburg, where he remains on bail. She began by asking him how it felt to be free.
