Libyan army cadets sent home early after Cambridge sex assaults

More than 300 Libyan soldiers training in the UK are being sent home early, after five of them were accused of sex attacks.

Two recruits appeared before magistrates in Cambridge on Tuesday, charged with rape.

The Ministry of Defence had originally planned to train 2,000 Libyans at Bassingbourn Barracks near Cambridge, but that is now being reviewed.

Lucy Manning reports.
