Libya: UK on a moral high ground, says Liam Fox

The cost of UK military operations in Libya has reached £250m so far, according to government sources.

Details are expected to be announced in a ministerial statement on Thursday.

Defence Secretary Liam Fox said avoiding civilian casualties drove up costs but the spending showed the UK held the "higher moral ground".
