Ray Tindall from Hull and Nicholas Simpson from Cottingham were among six British soldiers arrested and jailed as they provided anti-piracy protection for ships.

After many cancelled hearings, both men were released on bail in April, but were banned from leaving the country.

Today they were due to go before a court to get their charges quashed - but this has now been adjourned until Monday.

Ray's mother, Carole Edmonds, told Calendar News she was frustrated and upset by the news.

"It's appalling. It's just never ending. We thought today was going to be the day and that he would be on his way home by the weekend."

Meanwhile, Paul Towers, from Pocklington, remains in prison. He wasn't granted bail in April because he held a senior role on the ship.
