Briton stuck in Bahrain amidst violence

The UN human rights chief has condemned the "shocking" use of force by security forces against protesters in Bahrain.

The Foreign Office is urging British people to leave and two planes have been chartered to help get them home.

Steve, a British man living in Bahrain, told Louise Minchin about his failed attempt to escape the country.

He owes money in Bahrain, and authorities at the airport would not let him leave the country.
