A man from North Yorkshire is being held in prison in Africa after discovering 'bodies with machette wounds'.
David Simpson, 24, moved from his home near Pickering to the Central African Republic two years ago to work on a game reserve.
His family say he went for a drink at a river nearby when he found the bodies with machettes wounds to the backs of their heads.
David reported his discovery to the local authorities, who took him to the prison in the capital city Bangui, where he has been held without charge for a month.
His family say he has been wrongly accused of carrying out the killings himself.
The Justice Minister for the Central African Republic says the case will be brought before a Magistrate next week.
The British Foreign Office is providing consular assistance to David Simpson.
The family of a man imprisoned in an African jail says the British Government is not doing enough to help.
His family says he went for a drink and found bodies with machete wounds. But now he is being held in an African prison.
