Families overjoyed at bail news

Two people from Devon arrested by the Russian authorities during a protest against drilling in the Arctic have both been given bail.

For nearly two months Alexandra Harris and Kieron Bryan have been held in a Russian jail, but now they are free, until their trial for hooliganism begins.

Their families have welcomed the developments, but still fear the outcome of their case. Another man from Devon, Ian Rogers, is still waiting to find out whether he'll get bail too. This report from Richard Lawrence.
