UK's Afghan mission Tor Shezada 'quieter than expected'

A commanding officer in the UK's latest Afghanistan operation, Tor Shezada, has told the BBC that the insurgent response to the mission has been "quieter than expected".

Major Marcus Mudd, Commanding Officer, Brigade Reconnaissance Force, told the BBC that British forces had met little resistance but warned against complacency, describing the security situation in the country as "complex".

He spoke to the BBC's Ian Pannell, who is embedded with troops in Afghanistan.
