Algeria siege: Gwynedd man Garry Roberts safe and well


Relatives of a Gwynedd man working for BP at an Algerian gas plant which was attacked by militants have been told he is safe and well.

It is understood Garry Roberts hid in a loft with another man during the four-day siege in which 48 hostages are now thought to have died.

It is believed Mr Roberts may have run a fish and chip shop in Barmouth, where he has lived for about 20 years.

He is a former member of Barmouth's RNLI crew.

His family have been told he is being debriefed prior to returning to the UK.
