A 25-year-old man, who was jailed in a notorious Indonesian prison after breaking visa rules, has made an emotional return to Wales.

Mathew Davies, of Blackwood, Caerphilly, was sentenced in 2014 to six months in jail after his visa ran out.

He was held at Cipinang Penitentiary Institution in the capital Jakarta.

He said he was "very happy" to be home after being greeted by his mother at Cardiff Airport on Thursday night.
