THE five-year-old daughter of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe has arrived back in the UK after spending more than years in Iran with her jailed mum.
Gabriella was living with her grandparents and would visit her British-Iranian mum in the notorious Evin Prison after she was accused of spying and locked up.
Her mum was arrested in Tehran in 2016 and sentenced to five years but has always denied the charge.
Heartwarming pictures show the youngster embracing her dad Richard Ratcliffe after touching down in the UK.
Mr Ratcliffe said: “Gabriella came back to us late at night, a bit uncertain seeing those she only remembered from the phone.
“Now she is peacefully sleeping next to me. And I am just watching.
“It has been a long journey to have her home, with bumps right until the end – and I am grateful to all those at the British Embassy and Iranian MFA who helped smooth all those last blockages.
“Of course the job is not yet done until Nazanin is home.
“It was a hard goodbye for Nazanin and all her family. But let us hope this homecoming unlocks another.”
