Support Failure

A couple held captive by Somali pirates for more than a year have criticised the British government in a book, for failing to support their family.

Paul and Rachel Chandler said assistance offered to relatives had been “derisory”.

The couple’s ordeal began when their yacht was seized in October 2009 and they were held for 388 days.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) said it had been in “constant touch” with relatives.
