Breaking news - Speaking to the press outside his house, Aiden Aslin thanked President Zelenksky and the Saudi authorities for his release. Five Britons detained by Russia-backed separatists in Ukraine have landed at Heathrow after the biggest prisoner swap in the war to date. Aiden Aslin, John Harding, Dylan Healy, Andrew Hill and Shaun Pinner were met by their families. They were part of a group of 10 foreign detainees freed after Saudi Arabia brokered a deal between Russia and Ukraine. The Presidium Network confirmed they were back on British soil. Dominik Byrne, the co-founder of the non-profit who has been supporting Mr Healy's family, said they were all "looking forward to normality with their families after this horrific ordeal".
