Team of 10 UK soldiers sent to Poland to assist on Belarus border
MoD says small team of military personnel deployed after agreement with Polish government
Britain has sent a team of about 10 soldiers to Poland to help Warsaw strengthen its border with Belarus, where groups of migrants have been stranded attempting to cross into the EU.
The troops arrived on Thursday and are expected to spend a few days in the country, including visiting the border at the request of the Polish government to work out if they can repair or toughen the fencing.
