A Russian submarine has been intercepted by the Royal Navy as it cruised towards the English Channel.
The sub is being escorted by frigate HMS Kent and is expected to pass the Strait of Dover on Wednesday morning.
It is understood the Stary Oskol, a Kilo-class submarine capable of carrying cruise missiles and torpedoes, was first detected in the North Sea where Nato forces are monitoring the waters.
Locating this submarine was a combined effort with Nato allies and shadowing such units is routine activity for the Royal Navy. We continue to escort the submarine as it conducts its passage, providing a visible presence.
Defence Secretary Michael Fallon said: "This shows that the Navy is maintaining a vigilant watch in international and territorial waters to keep Britain safe and protect us from potential threats."

The crew of Royal Navy vessel HMS Bulwark expects to have rescued more than 1,000 migrants by the end of today.
ITV News' Carl Dinnen reports that 378 people were rescued from just one wooden boat this morning in the sea off Libya.
The crew have also rescued people from six inflatable boats and a seventh that was picked up by the Italian Coast Guard.
Britain is a country that "doesn't walk on by", David Cameron said as HMS Bulwark undertook another rescue mission off the coast of Libya.
Arriving at the G7 summit in Germany, the Prime Minister said the flagship had been deployed because Britain is a "country with a conscience".
"HMS Bulwark, the Royal Navy flagship, is in the Mediterranean because we want to save lives," Cameron said.
But he warned, "We need to deal with the causes of this migration, not simply with its consequences."
