Three British men jailed in Dubai for drugs offences

Three British men have been sentenced to four years in a Dubai prison after they were convicted for drugs offences.

Their families claim the men were tortured by police and forced to sign documents written in Arabic at gunpoint.

Grant Cameron, Suneet Jeerh and Karl Williams were arrested while on holiday last year by police who claimed to have found a quantity of a synthetic cannabis known as "spice" in their car.

Prime Minister David Cameron said he will raise the issue with the president of the United Arab Emirate when he arrives for a state visit tomorrow.
