A group of UK nationals has left Libya on a French boat following the escalation in violence between rival militias in and around the capital, Tripoli.
"A small group of British nationals left Tripoli this morning on board a French frigate," a Foreign Office spokesperson said.
"Our advice remains that British nationals should leave by commercial means still available, and we are monitoring the situation and keeping our advice under constant review."
