    A South Shields man who has been stranded in Ukraine for a year will be able to spend Christmas with his family after arriving home.

    Robert Urwin was detained in Kiev last year accused of signing a cheque for over £30,000 that later bounced in the United Arab Emirates in 2006.

    The 68-year-old always said it was forged, as he'd left the UAE the year before.

    Despite being cleared and released in Ukraine last December, he wasn't allowed to leave the country due to an Interpol red notice.

    That has now been lifted.

    Interpol has been contacted for a comment.
