VIDEO: Minister defends Afghan operation - BBC

Armed Forces Minister Bill Rammell has pointed to the increase in the number of helicopters and their flying hours in UK operations in Afghanistan.

He said the casualties had been high, but that had been expected in "one of the most challenging phases of this campaign".

He was speaking at Salisbury Plain, where 11 Light Brigade are training ahead of their deployment to Afghanistan in October.
