Woman tells of ordeal while backpacking in Australia

A young woman from Bury has described her terror after being held against her will on a backpacking holiday to Australia.

Mary Kate Heys, who's 20, accepted a lift from a 22 year old man in the state of Queensland, on Australia's east coast.

But when the driver started acting strangely she feared for her life.

Miri secretly managed to text her dad back home in the UK, who alerted the police in Australia.
