Fresh hope for families of soldiers in Indian prison

There is fresh hope for the families of six former soldiers serving a prison sentence in India, to have them released, following a visit by the Foreign Minister in Tamil Nadu.

Three Yorkshiremen were among the crew onboard a ship - providing protection to commercial ships on the Indian coast - when they were arrested for carrying weapons.

Earlier this year - more than two years after their initial arrest - they were jailed. Their families continue to battle to get them back home.
