Libya evacuee: 'I was shot at, hijacked and lost in the desert'

One evacuee from Libya has told of his plight to get out of the country.

Brian Walker, aged 50, who works for an oil company in the region, said it took him and colleagues a week to get out of Libya.

He said he spent days on the back of a truck, got lost in the desert and was hijacked by bandits.

He has now arrived in Malta after being flown out on an RAF Hercules - the second such flight out of the trouble hit country.
