Three boys have been reunited with their mother in the UK, 17 months after being taken by their father and left with distant relatives in Afghanistan.

They were discovered by local police in a northern area of Afghanistan after being traced by US lawyer, Kim Motley.

The boys, aged 18 months, four and eight were handed over to Ms Motley after close co-operation with Britain's National Crime Agency.

David Loyn reports.
