Gambia Britons admitting sedition

A Scottish missionary and his wife have pleaded guilty to sedition charges in Gambia, the BBC understands.

David and Fiona Fulton were arrested last month after allegedly criticising the government of the predominantly Muslim country.

Their lawyer has asked for them not to be sentenced until 30 December. They are also believed to have asked the court to show leniency.

Mr Fulton is from Troon, Ayrshire, and his wife is from Torquay, Devon.

Mr Fulton, 60, had been working as a chaplain for the country’s army.
