Mr Irving’s fiancee, Yvonne MacHugh, had their son William, four, while he was in prison. She said: “I am over the moon. I am so relieved. The hope is now they will get home for Christmas. All of our dreams have come true. ”The families must wait to hear when the six can return – or if the Indian government will challenge the judge’s decision.

I hope they can return home as soon as possible.
