'She visited me religiously during visiting hours which were every fortnight, bringing all my post with her. 'That in itself was a great help, vital really, as the Indian postal system is not very good, and it meant I could keep in contact with everyone I needed to. 'Mr Dunn spent time with Ms Das after his release from prison last week following a successful appeal. But yesterday the pair were forced to say goodbye to each other at Chennai International Airport. Mr Dunn added: 'It was very emotional. As I was leaving India Monalisa was getting very upset.

'When I was on bail I went to fast food places like KFC and Burger King, but they are not as nice as the UK versions. It was good to have a McDonald's. 'I am still on cloud nine. It has not sunk in. I feel like I am waiting to come down to earth. 'I don't know what my plans are yet, but I will stay in the country. It wouldn't be fair to leave and put my family through that again.

There were a series of appeals but none were successful until on November 77 a judge ruled they had been acquitted and were to be freed. They were apprehended in 7568 after the Indian coastguard boarded their vessel, the MV Seaman Guard Ohio, and accused them of taking a huge arsenal of weaponry into territorial waters. Mr Dunn said: 'It was quite hard at times. You have just got to knuckle down and get yourself into a routine and keep a good mental state, don't let stuff get to you. 'You're mixing with a different culture and a different way of life. The cell was clean but the communal toilets were disgusting. This is the best thing ever, to finally be back home with my family. 'Mr Dunn's sister Lisa, 87, campaigned tirelessly for his release since his ordeal first began in 7568.
