The son of a detained private investigator who is linked to a GlaxoSmithKline corruption investigation in China has been allowed to visit his father.

Harvey Humphrey has not seen his father, Peter, since his arrest more than a year ago.

The businessman and his wife, Yu Yingzeng, have been charged with illegally obtaining data.

Harvey Humphrey, 19, has told the BBC that his parents appeared well.

The British businessman is facing trial in China, and is being kept at a detention centre in Shanghai.

Mr Humphrey and his wife are accused of illegally obtaining information after their private investigation company was employed by GlaxoSmithKline to investigate internal allegations of bribery and corruption at the heart of the company's China operations.

Harvey Humphrey told the BBC that his mum and dad appeared in better health than he expected ahead of their trial, which is due to take place next week.
