Petition signed by 100,000 for Guantanamo detainee

After 11 years in Guantanamo Bay, Shaker Aamer is the last British resident left there.

Over 100,000 people have signed a petition calling on the government to demand the release of the south London man.

It paves the way for the issue to be debated in Parliament.

His father-in-law Saeed Siddique, campaigner Suliman Gani and Raffaello Pantucci of the Royal United Services Institute appear in this report by Sarah Harris.
