British couple ‘feared kidnapped by ISIS’ in South Africa were filming with BBC presenter before they disappeared

A British couple feared kidnapped by Islamic State extremists in South Africa had been filming with a BBC Gardeners’ World presenter shortly before they vanished.

Horticulturists Rodney Saunders, 73, and his wife, Rachel, 64, went missing two weeks ago.

Police have arrested a man and a woman who have links to Isis fanatics on suspicion of kidnapping and possibly killing the couple in the remote foothills of the Drakensberg mountains on February 12.
