I give your answer.

There is not any specific restriction for money transfer from Somalia but there are strict money laundering laws in the UK but if you have tax details then it should not be problem. It is better that you do bank to bank transfer. It would be very difficult to do cash transfers. You can contact with both banks and provide all of required documents before transfer so they do not crest any problem in transfer.

I hope it will help you.
