Man jailed after discovering African 'mass killing site'

The family of a North Yorkshire man imprisoned without charge in Africa after discovering a suspected massacre are campaigning for his release.

David Simpson, 24, from Pickering, was working in the Central African Republic as a safari guide when he says he came across 18 mutilated bodies.

He reported it to the authorities but was later arrested along with his boss and both have been in jail for a month.

Peter Biles reports.
