RAF Tornados join military action in Libya
British jets and a submarine have fired missiles at Libyan military sites as part of a UN-backed international operation to enforce a no-fly zone.
Prime Minister David Cameron called the action "legal, necessary and right".
RAF Tornados flew 3,000 miles from RAF Marham, in Norfolk, and back to carry out their bombing mission.
Military spokesman Major General John Lorimer said that all of the aircraft involved returned safely to the UK.
