A gas worker from Teesside who was being held hostage in Algeria has been freed, and has been speaking on television about his experience.
Darren Matthews from Loftus said that he was relieved to be free, but would not feel completely safe until he was back in the UK.
It is thought that around ten British people are still being held, after terrorists stormed a gas plant two days ago.
