Frankie Boyle says he has not eaten for four days in a bid to highlight the case of Shaker Aamer - the last UK resident being held at Guantanamo Bay. The Scottish comedian has joined campaigners who are attempting to fast for a combined total of 1,000 hours. Mr Aamer, from London, has been detained in the military prison for 11 years without being charged or tried.

Since February, 100 of the 166 prisoners still held have been refusing food in protest at their detention. Human rights campaigners Reprieve are supporting the hunger-strikers by encouraging supporters to give up food temporarily.
