Shaker Aamer, the last British resident held at Guantanamo Bay, has returned to the UK after he was finally released from the controversial prison.

The 46-year-old arrived on a private plane at Biggin Hill airport in south-east London.

Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond earlier confirmed he had been freed after 13 years in detention at the US military facility in Cuba.
