The last U.K. resident detained at Guantanamo Bay has returned home after almost 14 years in which he became a defiant spokesman for the prisoners.

Shaker Aamer, a Saudi citizen who married a British woman and moved to London in 1997, landed Friday at Biggin Hill airport at about 1 p.m. local time. Aamer, who was never charged with a crime, was released from the U.S. military prison on Cuba Thursday evening.
