Two men from Merseyside are among the victims of the Algeria hostage crisis.

46-year-old Paul Morgan is reported to be a former Foreign Legion soldier and Gulf War veteran who was in charge of security at the In Amenas plant.

Mr Morgan was described by his mother Marianne, 65, and partner Emma Steele, 36, as a "true gentleman" who died doing the job he loved.

"He loved life and lived it to the full. He was a professional man proud to do the job he did and died doing the job he loved. "We are so proud of him and so proud of what he achieved in his life. We are devastated by Paul's death and he will be truly missed."

Garry Barlow, 49, also from Liverpool, was a married father of two who was a system supervisor for BP at the In Amenas plant.

David Cameron will update MPs today on the aftermath of the Algerian hostage crisis as officials worked to establish the fate of the final missing British workers from the BP gas plant.
