    Two Britons held in Russia after a Greenpeace protest at an Arctic oil rig have been denied bail.

    Kieron Bryan's family say he is not part of Greenpeace but a freelance journalist. The videographer and activist Phillip Ball are among 30 people facing piracy charges, punishable by up to 15 years' jail.
