Foreign Office Minister on Britons left in Libya

Scores of Britons are stranded in Libya as efforts are redoubled to bring them back amid continuing protests there.

The Foreign Office has confirmed there are up to 220 Britons still stranded in Libya, 50 of them in Tripoli and between 150 and 170 in the more remote oil-producing areas in the Libyan desert.

Foreign Office Minister, Alistair Burt, told the BBC's Susannah Reid that another charter flight is expected to bring British nationals back on Friday.
