Richard Ratcliffe, the husband of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, is on hunger strike, camping and staging a picket outside the Iranian Embassy in London. His wife, who is in prison in Iran, is also on hunger strike in protest at the conditions of her detention. Their 5 year old daughter Gabriella is in Iran with her grandparents but Richard has not been able to see her since his wife's detention while on holiday in Iran more than three years ago. He began the hunger strike at noon on Saturday 15 June 2019. The Iranian Embassy installed two metal fencing panels on Monday morning to screen the entrance of the Embassy from Mr Ratcliffe's protest.
