Nicholas Warner, homeless Briton in Dubai, returns to UK

Nicholas Warner, a British man who had been living rough on the streets of Dubai, is travelling back to the UK.

With help from locals and an expat sponsor, he obtained the release of his passport from the authorities.

Mr Warner had been sleeping in parks and public places around the city for nearly 12 weeks.

He said his problems began when he got into a dispute with his bank, Emirates NBD, initially over whether his credit card repayments had been made.

The bank has said that all its actions have been in accordance with the law of the United Arab Emirates.
