Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe said her reunion with her husband and daughter has been "precious" and "glorious", but said her release from detention in Iran should have happened six years ago.

Speaking in public for the first time at a press conference following her release, the British-Iranian mother looked relaxed and happy as she paid tribute to her "amazing, wonderful" husband Richard Ratcliffe.
