Navy ship arrives in Malta with Libya evacuees

A Royal Navy frigate carrying around 200 evacuees from Libya, including 60 British nationals, has arrived in Malta.

HMS Cumberland left the port of Benghazi on Thursday and the passengers then endured a 35-hour-long journey in rough seas.

The ship's captain, Steve Dainton, said that from the moment the evacuees saw that a Royal Navy ship was waiting to pick them up, they felt a sense of relief and security.
