A British woman who faced prison in Dubai over a jibe she posted on Facebook has embraced her daughter after landing back in the UK.

Laleh Shahravesh, 55, had faced up to two years in jail after calling her ex-husband's new wife a "horse".

Her case was settled with a AED3,000 (£625) fine on Thursday, the campaign group which represented her said.

Ms Shahravesh told reporters at Heathrow airport: "I'm really, really happy to be reunited."

Her daughter Paris, 14, had pleaded with United Arab Emirates authorities to release her mother, earlier this week.

The mother-of-one, from Richmond in south-west London, also thanked Radha Stirling, the chief executive of campaigners Detained in Dubai, who she said had "worked tirelessly to get me home to my daughter".

Ms Stirling said the incident was a "grave warning" to social media users over visiting Dubai, with the "vast majority" of similar cases going unheard.
