Judith Tebbutt from Bishop's Stortford in Hertfordshire 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.
– JUDITH TEBBBUTT ON HER RELEASE
"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.
