Demonstrators in Ukraine prevented police from from arresting an anti-government protester, who says he was kidnapped and tortured.

Graphic footage of Dmytro Bulatov's injuries have been aired around the world. He says he was "crucified" by his captors, who had "Russian accents".

Government officials have claimed he staged his abduction, but on Friday police officers were blocked from entering the hospital where Mr Bulatov is being treated.

Duncan Crawford reports.
