Russian warships to enter English Channel

A flotilla of Russian warships is expected to enter the English Channel on Friday morning en route to Syria.

Two British naval ships are shadowing the vessels. The Ministry of Defence said they would be "man-marked every step of the way" while near UK waters.

A Russian tug, believed to be in convoy with the taskforce, has entered the channel off the coast near Ramsgate. Catriona Renton reports.
