Libya: RAF Typhoon mission 'complicated'

The coalition air strikes have continued in Libya, with RAF Typhoon jets flying their first-ever combat missions overnight while policing the Libyan no-fly zone.

The jets are part of a squadron of planes, including Tornados, which are based at Gioia Del Colle in southern Italy.

The BBC's Jon Sopel spoke to Wing Commander Jez Attridge, who was one of the pilots on the first RAF Typhoon mission to Libya to patrol the no-fly zone.
