Sir Paul McCartney has written an open letter to Russian President Vladimir Putin, urging him to release the Greenpeace detainees, including 3 who are from Devon.
He's asking for them to be freed before Christmas, telling the Russian leader that 'millions of people in dozens of countries would be hugely grateful' if they're released. Kieran Bryan, Alexandra Harris and Iain Rogers are among thirty people being held on hooliganism charges.
