Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe: Husband Richard on hunger strike to urge government to help


Richard Ratcliffe, the husband of Iranian detainee Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, has been on hunger strike in Whitehall since 24 October, demanding the government does more to secure her release.

Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe, a British-Iranian dual national, was first jailed in Tehran in 2016 on spying charges, which she has always denied.

BBC video journalist Lorna Acquah has been visiting Mr Ratcliffe to talk about the physical and emotional toll of the hunger strike and its impact on his seven-year-old daughter.
