Amina Al-Jeffery's friend: 'She said it was like prison'

A friend of Amina Al-Jeffery - a British-Saudi woman who has won a court case allowing her to return to the UK - says she described her time there as "like a prison".

The friend, who asked not to be identified, said Amina Al-Jeffery sent her messages asking for help.

Earlier on Wednesday, the High Court in London ruled that she must be allowed to return. Amina Al-Jeffery claimed her father had locked her up against her will. Her father Mohammed, said he did it to "save her life".
