The head of the Navy has warned the Libyan conflict can only be sustained if the Government makes defence cuts elsewhere. First Sea Lord Admiral Sir Mark Stanhope said ministers would have to "reprioritise" - making cuts in firepower elsewhere - if the Nato-led campaign lasts beyond the UK's existing six-month commitment.
British forces have been in action in Libya since March. Two weeks ago, Nato extended the mission by another 90 days and taxpayers are now expected to foot a £1bn bill. In March, Chancellor George Osborne said UK involvement would cost tens of millions of pounds. By the end of April, the cost had soared to £300m and was increasing by as much as £38m a week.
