Photographer Guy Martin who was injured in a grenade attack in Libya is "progressing well" at a Cornwall hospital.

The 28 year old from Falmouth suffered serious stomach and leg injuries in the blast that killed two colleagues in Misrata.

He underwent surgery in Misrata before being taken to the island of Malta.

He was then transferred to the Royal Cornwall Hospital in Truro which said he was "doing fine".

Mr Martin, who was working for the Panos Pictures agency, was injured in April as Misrata came under siege by forces loyal to Col Muammar Gaddafi.

Fellow journalists, Liverpool-born Tim Hetherington, 40, and American Chris Hondros, 41, died in the blast.

New York-based photographer Michael Christopher Brown also suffered shrapnel wounds.

The Libyan uprising against Gaddafi's 42-year rule began in mid-February.
