Britain has said it will stick to its stated plan to hand control over the Chagos Islands to Mauritius once they are no longer needed for defence purposes. The UN earlier passed a resolution demanding it cede control within six months.

We speak to a Chagos Islander and a former UK high commissioner to Mauritius.
