British troops have left all but one forward operating base in Helmand province, as the UK reaches a major milestone in the drawdown from Afghanistan.
Just one base, Sterga 2, remains in Helmand outside Camp Bastion, effectively becoming Britain's front line in the area, as the UK works towards withdrawing all combat troops by the end of this year.
In an operation lasting more than a month, three important bases have been closed or handed over to Afghan control.
Main Operating Base (MOB) Lashkar Gah - the former headquarters of UK military forces in Afghanistan - and Patrol Base (PB) Lashkar Gah Durai have been handed over to Afghan control.
