Ex-Beatle Sir Paul McCartney has written to Vladimir Putin, calling for the release of a group of detainees known as the Arctic 30.

 

In his letter to the Russian president, he expresses hope that the 28 protesters and 2 journalists could be home before Christmas.

 

They were arrested during a Greenpeace demonstration against oil drilling in the Russian arctic 8 weeks ago.

 

The group - which includes six Britons - have been charged with hooliganism.
