The first of the Chennai Six to arrive home flew into Glasgow Airport on Wednesday. Billy Irvine was met by his family at the airport. After a few private moments with his loved ones, he spoke to reporters saying “It feels excellent to be home”. Nick Dunn and Nicholas Simpson arrived on Wednesday with the other three veterans following on soon after.
The homecoming marks the end of a highly traumatic ordeal where the six lads were wrongly imprisoned over arms offences.
