While working for Reuters in Beijing in July 1967 he was confined to the basement of his house by the Chinese government, ostensibly for spying, but really in retaliation for the jailing of eight left-wing journalists who had violated emergency regulations in Hong Kong. China demanded the release of the eight before Grey would be released. While the eight were eventually released, China then demanded the release of a further 13 Chinese jailed in Hong Kong. The Hong Kong government refused. Grey was able to communicate by mail with his mother and girlfriend back in England, but was only allowed two 20-minute visits by British consular officials in the first 17 months of his confinement, and was never formally charged.
He was released in October 1969 after 27 months of captivity. upon his return to Britain he was awarded the "Journalist of the Year" prize for 1969 at the IPC National Press awards, and an OBE.
