At the High Court in London supporters of three elderly Kenyans celebrated after a ruling which says they can sue Britain.

The Kenyans were tortured during a crackdown by British forces and their allies in the 1950s on the Mau Mau movement fighting for land and freedom.

The government which had tried for three years to block the case said it planned to appeal.
