Wife of Alan Henning pleads with IS for his safe return
'Please release him, we need him back home'
Barbara Henning has issued a plea for Islamic State to release her husband.
Alan Henning, a former taxi driver from Salford, was kidnapped last December in Syria by IS militants.
She told BBC News: "I ask Islamic State please release him, we need him back home."
The 47-year-old aid worker was shown at the end of a video released earlier this month after the beheading of fellow British captive David Haines.
