UK warship escorts Russian carrier in English Channel

A British warship and three RAF Typhoons will keep "a close eye" on the Russian carrier as they sail past the UK.

A Royal Navy Type 23 frigate, HMS St Albans, was dispatched to meet it as it neared British waters.

The Ministry of Defence said the ships would be "escorted all the way".
