Penny Downie reads the remarkable story of Judith Tebbutt's 192 days in captivity at the hands of Somali pirates.
In September 2011, Judith Tebbutt and her husband David embarked on a dream holiday on an idyllic beach resort in Kenya. On the first night, their worst nightmares become reality, when they are awoken by violent intruders, and Judith is dragged away towards a waiting motor-boat. And so begins the story of Judith's more than 6-month ordeal at the hands of ruthless Somali pirates, and so ends the life she knew and loved.
Today: after nearly a month of captivity, Judith finally gets a phone call - but worryingly it's from her son, rather than from her husband...
