Wiltshire Council has issued a statement in light of the current situation in Afghanistan.

Cllr Richard Clewer Leader of Wiltshire Council and Cabinet Member for Military Civilian Integration said: "We are monitoring the difficult and distressing situation in Afghanistan and are awaiting government guidance as the situation unfolds. Here in Wiltshire we have always been ready to help those who need a safe place to stay and we will respond as necessary when guidance is published. This includes offering support to interpreters and those trying to reach a safe haven. We are already looking to provide homes for at least two families and there may be more in due course.

"Wiltshire has a strong military presence and we recognise the extraordinary efforts of our service personnel who have served in Afghanistan as part of the UK efforts to bring peace to the region. We know the latest news may be difficult for our local military communities and we are here ready to support them at this time."
