Major Russian naval force sails to North Sea past Norway
A Russian aircraft-carrier and other warships have reached waters near Trondheim in Norway and will soon head towards the UK.
The naval task force from Russia's Northern Fleet is expected to sail through the English Channel, then down to Gibraltar, and through the Mediterranean Sea to the Syrian coast.
