Three Devon people released

Three people from Devon who were being held for their part in a Greenpeace protest in the Arctic have today been released from jail. They'd been in prison for two months - initially on charges of piracy and then of hooliganism.

At the moment they're all still due to put on trial. But today their families say they hope they'll see them soon.

Father of Arctic Brit 'thrilled' at his custody release

After watching the live pictures of Keiron Bryan walking out of jail, his father Andy Bryan said:

We're absolutely thrilled Kieron is out. He looks tremendously relieved, in good shape, and doesn't seem to have lost his sense of humour either.

Now we just can't wait to speak to him and then we'll hopefully be able to see him in person too. Of course there are still these terrible charges hanging over him.

He feels a terrible injustice has been done but has also made it clear that he intends to clear his name.

Greenpeace 3 hoping to leave jail today

However they'll still face charges of hooliganism for their part in protests against oil drilling in the arctic. It's thought they'll stay in the country until they appear in court.
