Three Brits 'tortured by Dubai police'

Three British men who were on holiday in Dubai were subjected to torture including beatings and electric shocks by police, according to human rights group Reprieve.

Grant Cameron, Karl Williams and Suneet Jeerh, all 25-years-old, are still being held in the United Arab Emirates on drug charges.

They were arrested on July 10, 2012, after police claim to have found a quantity of synthetic cannabis in their car. They have plead not guilty.

The three men, from London and Essex, all signed documents in Arabic - a language none of them understand - after being subjected to beatings and threatened with guns to their heads, according to Reprieve.
