Exclusive video: Hostage Judith Tebbutt freed in Somalia

Judith Tebbutt has been freed by her captors, seven months after she was kidnapped from a beach in Kenya.

During the raid her husband David was killed.

She was taken in September last year while staying at the Kiwayu Safari Village near the Kenya Somali border.

I'm very relieved to have been released. Seven months is a long time and under the circumstances, with my husband passing away, made it harder.

I'm looking forward to seeing my son who successfully secured my release, I don't know how he did it, but he did.

It is understood that her family paid a ransom for her release and it is believed that she is on her way to Nairobi in Kenya.
