UK troops in Estonia to counter 'increasingly assertive Russia'

The first British troops have arrived in Estonia as part of NATO's response to Russian aggression.

The 120 soldiers from 5 Rifles left RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire and landed at Amari airbase southwest of Tallinn on Friday night.

They will set up an HQ in the country before the remaining troops arrive next month.

There will be 800 British troops in total, backed up by a smaller French force.

Three hundred vehicles, including Challenger tanks and Warrior infantry fighting vehicles, are also en route for eastern Europe.
