Less than two years after being released by Somali pirates, Paul and Rachel Chandler, from Tunbridge Wells, have set sail again.

The pair were spotted leaving Dartmouth Harbour in their restored yacht at the weekend bound, it's thought, for Spain.

The couple spent 388 days in captivity after armed raiders boarded their yacht as they sailed from the Seychelles to Tanzania in notoriously dangerous waters in 2009.

They were released in November 2010 after a ransom of £625,000 was paid.
