Man arrested over adultery charge
A Swindon man has been arrested in the Philippines on suspicion of adultery.

David Scott is expecting a baby with married Cynthia Delfino, who has left her husband but is not yet divorced.

Her husband reported the affair to the Filipino authorities and the couple were arrested at Ms Delfino's Manila home for alleged adultery.

Mr Scott, 35, met Ms Delfino, 27, in an internet chatroom in 2006. A Foreign Office spokeswoman said the situation was being monitored.

"We are providing full consular assistance for him and his family. He was visited on the day of his arrest. We will continue to provide support," she said.

It is believed Mr Scott has been released on bail.
