British soldiers have found a cache of IEDs and bomb-making components in a village in Helmand on the second day of a major offensive against Taliban insurgents.

Commanders say the operation has met only light resistance as soldiers consolidate their hold on ground seized from the Taliban around the town of Saidabad.

Ian Pannell reports from Nad-e-Ali.
