He was arrested and assaulted in front of the team, and appeared to be bleeding from cuts to his arms.

A Channel 4 News spokesman said: "Our primary concern is for the safety of the team, and we are working with the appropriate authorities to secure a swift release.

"We are also working hard to establish the whereabouts of the driver who was assaulted and separated from the group."
