EXCLUSIVE: A former superbike racer, who's been stranded in Dubai for seven months after his wife died on their honeymoon, has called on the British government to help him return home. 43 year old Sean Emmett's wife Abbie, who was 27, fell from their hotel in February. It was the last time he saw her alive. A coroner ruled her death wasn't suspicious. But as the couple had been drinking, Mr Emmett had his passport confiscated and he was fined for drinking alcohol without a licence. He says he has no idea when he'll be allowed to return home and the Foreign Office says it can't interfere in the United Arab Emirates' legal process.
