Philip Hammond on latest British hostage video

A new video has been released showing a British man believed to be being held hostage by Islamic State (IS) militants.

IS has already killed three hostages and, in its video showing the death of UK aid worker David Haines, threatened to kill British man Alan Henning next.

The latest video, which does not feature a beheading, shows a third British man wearing orange clothing who says he is a prisoner.

The foreign secretary, Philip Hammond, says the government is doing "everything it can to support the hostages and their families".
