THE first flight of evacuated personnel from Afghanistan arrived in Oxfordshire last night.

Late last night the flight from Kabul landed in RAF Brize Norton, near Carterton.

The plane consisted of British Embassy staff and British Citizens said the Ministry of Defence.

The Taliban took control of Kabul yesterday and has since declared the war in Afghanistan is over.

The Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, will chair a Cobra meeting on Monday afternoon to discuss the ongoing situation in Afghanistan, No 10 has confirmed.

British troops are currently racing against the clock to get remaining UK nationals and their local allies out of Afghanistan following the dramatic fall of the country’s Western-backed government.

Defence Secretary Ben Wallace has admitted, however, that 'some people won’t get back' from Afghanistan as a desperate struggle to get UK nationals and local allies out of the country continued.

Mr Wallace, who previously served in the Scots Guards, appeared to choke up while appearing on the LBC radio station this morning as he spoke about the evacuation effort from the country, which has fallen to the Taliban following the withdrawal of Western troops.

He said: “It’s a really deep part of regret for me … look, some people won’t get back. 

"Some people won’t get back and we will have to do our best in third countries to process those people.”
