The parents of a film maker charged with piracy by the Russian authorities have described the charges as "ludicrous".

Kieron Bryan, 29, has been in custody since 21 September when armed officials stormed the ship Arctic Sunrise after Greenpeace activists tried to scale an oil platform.

His father Andy said he was not a member of Greenpeace - his mother Ann said her son was "simply doing his job and making his living".
