David Simpson cleared of Africa massacre hopes to go back

When light aircraft pilot David Simpson came across the bodies in remote bushland in the Central African Republic, his first instinct was to call the police.

But that decision led to him being jailed on suspicion of being involved in the massacre.

It took the authorities nearly six months to clear him of all the charges. Mr Simpson, who's from North Yorkshire, claimed to BBC Breakfast that he was told his release could be secured in exchange for a bribe.
