Two British journalists arrested in Turkey on terror charges have been released, according to Turkish media.

Vice News correspondent Jake Hanrahan and cameraman Philip Pendlebury (pictured) were arrested while filming in the south-east region of Diyarbakir.

They were detained along with a Turkish colleague while filming clashes between police and youth members of the pro-Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) last Thursday.

They were charged on Monday, allegedly with "assisting Islamic State" (Isis).
