British hostage in Algeria describes being rescued

One of the 22 British workers who made it home safely from the Algeria hostage crisis has spoken about his ordeal for the first time.

Four British people, one UK resident, thirty foreigners and one Algerian worker died at the BP In Armenas gas plant in January.

A further two British nationals are thought to have been killed but that is still to be confirmed.

Tony Grisedale from Workington recounted the hostage situation to BBC Radio 5 live's Victoria Derbyshire.
