image for UK Response To Libyan Crisis Criticised

The Foreign Office is keeping its own counsel in response to widespread criticism at the "lukewarm" efforts made to fly stranded Britons back home.

Unofficial reports indicate that 2 planes arrived in Tripoli yesterday but one was a two seater Cessna and the other was a four seater Piper Sedan whose pilot brought his pet labrador Biggles along with him.

The only other vehicles that have so far arrived to collect worried Britons include a Rapido 10003 motor home belonging to a British embassy staffer, a Scania heavy haulage lorry formerly used to transport sheep to slaughter and a fleet of Harley Davidson Sportsters driven by members of the Taunton, Somerset Women's Institute on an adventure holiday.

Foreign Secretary William Hague was last night "unavailable" for comment.
