The parents of Linda Norgrove have spoken of the ''emotional rollercoaster'' they endured from the time of their daughter's kidnapping in Afghanistan to her death in a failed rescue operation.

John and Lorna Norgrove were speaking at home on the Isle of Lewis in an interview with a family friend.

They said they were ''immensely proud'' of their daughter's humanitarian work with the Afghan people and did not want to enter a ''blame game'' on how she died.
