Paul Chandler describes his release

Retired UK couple Paul and Rachel Chandler have been freed by Somali pirates after spending over a year in captivity.

Mr Chandler spoke to the BBC's Will Ross about how the couple's hopes of release had been frequently raised and dashed, and about his emotions now that they have finally been freed.

The BBC observed the terms of an injunction obtained by the Chandlers' family which was intended to stop news organisations reporting their release until they were out of Somalia - for their own safety.
