Carterton balloon disaster photographer Geoff Walker has been freed after being detained in Uganda.

Mr Walker, who photographed the 2012 crash which killed 11 people and then took legal action in an attempt to block the release of his images, lives in the east African nation and was arrested by local police on Tuesday.

Today, he posted on Facebook that he had been freed.

"I'm fine just a little tired," he wrote.
