The Prime Minister has arrived in Ulverston and, ahead of his visit to the new GlaxoSmithKline factory, took time to praise Judith Tebbutt the hostage from the town freed by Somali pirates.
A woman from Ulverston who was kidnapped in Kenya is expected to return home to the UK today. Judith Tebbutt was freed in Somalia after being held hostage for six months.
Her family paid a ransom for her release.
Gladys Atkinson says she "can't really believe" her daughter, Judith Tebbutt, has been released from captivity.
