A former superbike racer, who's been stranded in Dubai for seven months after his wife died on their honeymoon, has called on the British government to help him return home. Sean Emmett's wife Abbie fell from their hotel in February. It was the last time he saw her alive. A coroner ruled her death wasn't suspicious. But as the couple had been drinking, Mr Emmett had his passport confiscated and he was fined for drinking alcohol without a licence. He says he has no idea when he'll be allowed to return home and the Foreign Office says it can't interfere in the United Arab Emirates' legal process.

Also a BBC survey finds more than a quarter of 18- to 24-year-olds in Britain say they don't trust Muslims, and 28% say Britain would be better off with fewer Muslims. Victoria looks at how much Islamaphobia there is in Britain - and why.
