Mother's relief at sons' return from Russia

A north London mother has described her relief at having her two sons back home after they were kept in Russia by her former husband in breach of a court order.

Rachael Neustadt, from Hendon, said Ilya Neustadt took their two sons on holiday in December 2012 then refused to hand them back to her despite rulings by the British and Russian courts.

At a High Court hearing on Monday it was revealed the brothers had been found in Moscow and were now back home.

BBC London's Home Affairs Correspondent Guy Smith spoke to Ms Neustadt and the children's grandfather, Roger Rapp.
