Libyan soldiers seek asylum

It's emerged a "handful" of Libyan soldiers who were being trained at the Bassingbourn army base in Cambridgeshire have claimed asylum to remain in the UK.

More than 300 troops were sent home after five cadets were charged in connection with a string of sex attacks in Cambridge last month. The Defence Secretary Michael Fallon has now confirmed that some of the soldiers have refused to return to Libya, despite the Prime Minister insisting that none should be granted asylum.
