William Hague sending 'an additional flight' for Britons in Egypt

Tens of thousands of Egyptians are staging a demonstration in Cairo, calling for an end to the 30-year rule of President Hosni Mubarak.

The UK is to send a charter aircraft to collect any Britons who want to leave Egypt.

Foreign Secretary William Hague added he was prepared to send more flights if necessary.
