The widow of one of the victims of the Algerian hostage massacre has described him as a "loving, devoted family man".

Garry Barlow, 49, a married father of two from Liverpool, was a system supervisor for BP at the In Amenas plant.

In a statement released through the Foreign Office, his widow Lorraine said: "Garry was a loving, devoted family man. He loved life and lived it to the full.

"He was very much loved by myself, his sons, mother and sister and the rest of his family and friends and will be greatly missed.

"He was very proud of his family, as they were of him. We are totally devastated by the news of his death and would ask that the family be left in peace to grieve."
