First Afghanistan arrivals land in UK after PM’s pledge to take 20,000 refugees

The Mirror says: The first rescue mission carrying Afghan evacuees and stranded Brits has landed safely in the UK after escaping the clutches of the Taliban, say reports.

An RAF Airbus KC2 Voyager aircraft landed at RAF Brize Norton, Oxfordshire, on Tuesday, after a dramatic escape from Kabul.

The plane, said to be carrying Brit personnel and Afghan interpreters is one of a number of flights expected to land in the next few days as evacuation efforts continue.

In horrifying scenes on Monday crowds of Afghans desperate to flee the Taliban were filmed chasing down jets along the runway with some clinging to the wheels of a US military plane.

Distressing video showed desperate stowaways plunging to their deaths from a plane as it left Kabul.
