Sky, 03 May 2021
The UK has downplayed reports a deal has been struck to secure the release of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe.

It was reported on Iran state TV that Britain would pay a £400m debt to secure Nazanin's release, but the Foreign Office said 'legal discussions are ongoing'.

Richard Ratcliffe, the husband of the British-Iranian charity worker, said the family had not been updated but welcomed the signals from Tehran over the long-running dispute as 'a good sign'.
