David Cameron pledged help to bolster the police and army in Libya today as he made an unannounced visit to the country.

The Prime Minister said Britain was ready to provide training and advice amid growing concern about the security situation in the region.

On a walkabout in the capital's famous Martyrs' Square, Cameron was greeted by friendly locals.

The premier last visited Libya in September 2011, touring Tripoli and Benghazi shortly after Colonel Muammar Gaddafi lost his grip on power.
