UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and his Iranian counterpart have spoken “frankly” about jailed Briton Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe.

He and Mohammed Javad Zarif discussed issues including her case and that of other dual nationals held in Iran.

Ms Zaghari-Ratcliffe has been held in Tehran since April 2016, after being accused of spying, a charge she denies.

Her husband, Richard Ratcliffe, spoke of his “hopes and fears”, telling the BBC “it could go any which way”.
