Help given to drugs case children

Full Article:

Relatives are working with consular officials in Venezuela to bring home the four children of a British couple detained for alleged drugs offences.
Paul Makin, 31, and his wife Laura were held on 16 February on Margarita Island for allegedly carrying cocaine.
The four children were placed into the care of Venezuelan social services.
British Embassy officials travelled to the island to ensure the children's welfare and provide consular services to the detainees.
The children are an eight- and a seven-year-old from a former marriage of Laura Makin, and the couple's two-year-old twins.
The Foreign Office confirmed that other family members have arrived on Margarita Island, and are working to repatriate the four children as soon as possible.
