A Greenpeace ship, impounded in Russia for months after a protest over oil drilling, has returned to her home port in the Netherlands.

The Arctic Sunrise was boarded by Russian security forces in September, and 30 Greenpeace activists were temporarily jailed on charges of piracy and hooliganism.

The BBC’s Anna Holligan joined some of the original crew as they sailed back to a hero’s welcome.
