Libya conflict: Clearing mines at Misrata port
The Royal Navy has been involved in clearing mines off the Libyan port of Misrata, which they say were laid by pro-Gaddafi forces.
HMS Brocklesby, one of the Royal Navy's Mine Counter-Measures Vessels, destroyed a mine less than a mile from the port entrance, the Ministry of Defence has said.
Lieutenant Commander James Byron, Commanding Officer of HMS Brocklesby, has discussed the operation.
