Nick Dunn is waiting for permission to return to the UK Credit: Dunn family

The family of a former soldier from Northumberland, who's been held in India, say he's facing further delays in being allowed home.

Nick Dunn, from Ashington, was one of several British men arrested on arms charges, while working on a ship that was protecting other vessels from pirates.

The charges were dropped but he's still waiting for the authorities to allow him to return to the UK.

His family say they hope he'll be allowed home next week.
