Pen Farthing and his rescue dogs WILL board evacuation jet after being plucked to safety by Brit army at Kabul airport
PEN Farthing and his rescue dogs WILL board an evacuation jet after being plucked to safety by the British army at Kabul airport.
Defence bosses tonight confirmed the ex-Commando "and his pets" have received clearance for their charter flight to return to the UK.
The Ministry of Defence press office tweeted minutes ago: "Pen Farthing and his pets were assisted through the system at Kabul airport by the UK armed forces.
"They are currently being supported while he awaits transportation.
"On the direction of the Defence Secretary, clearance for their charter flight has been sponsored by the UK Government."
The announcement has been hailed by concerned Brits who have been avidly following the former Royal Marine's escape efforts on social media.
A relieved Steph Lucas replied that his escape was "the news we have all been waiting for".
Farthing had been battling to evacuate his staff and almost 200 rescue animals, after being forced to turn away from an evacuation flight yesterday.
