Captive British bosses at French factory are released
Workers at a French factory, due to close, have released their three bosses after they agreed to more talks.
100 employees face redundancy at the firm, which manufactures adhesive films and tapes for the car and construction industries.
The rouge workers held their bosses captive for over 24-hours and blocked entrances to the factory using trucks.

French president Nicolas Sarkozy said it was "totally unacceptable".
