Three women who were imprisoned in a house in Cleveland, Ohio for more than a decade have posted a video on YouTube thanking their supporters for helping them rebuild their lives.

Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight each make short statements, detailing how they have been coping since they were freed from Ariel Castro's home in May.

Mr Castro has been charged with abducting and raping the women, who all disappeared between 2002 and 2004.
