The brother of a freelance photojournalist and film maker facing piracy charges in Russia has told Daybreak of how he fears his brother's life could be "torn apart" by a prison sentence on "absurd" charges.
Russell Bryan called for a "proportionate" punishment for the 30 activists arrested on board the Arctic Sunrise and maintained this his brother, Kieron, had only been filming the protest as part of a job.
Kieron is due to appear in court in Murmansk, north-west Russia later today.
