British couple's 'scary' journey home from Libya

Scores of Britons are stranded in Libya as efforts are redoubled to bring them back amid continuing protests there.

The Foreign Office has confirmed there are up to 220 Britons still stranded in Libya, 50 of them in Tripoli and between 150 and 170 in the more remote oil-producing areas in the Libyan desert.

Chris and Jackie Murphy moved to Libya last September but they have now returned to the UK and are staying with relatives.

The couple told BBC Breakfast about their "scary" journey home.
