Kidnapped yacht couple 'being treated well'

The British couple being held hostage by Somali pirates have said they are being treated well.

Paul and Rachel Chandler disappeared on Friday while sailing a yacht from the Seychelles to Tanzania.

Mr Chandler made contact with the BBC and ITV last night and said he and his wife were being fed and treated well.

At the time, they were being held on a hijacked container ship off the Somali coast, but witnesses say they were later moved to a village in Somalia.

The kidnappers are likely to make a ransom demand in the coming days.
