HMS Dauntless sets sail for the Falklands

HMS Dauntless, one of the UK's largest and most powerful air defence destroyers, has set sail for the Falkland Islands.

The Ministry of Defence says it is a "pre-planned and routine" six-month deployment in the South Atlantic.

However, it comes within days of the 30th anniversary of the start of the war.

Steve Humphrey reports from Portsmouth.
