The Taliban claims Sangin is under its control but relatives of UK troops killed in Afghanistan say there should be no return.

Afghan commanders have called for NATO back up after the Taliban claimed to have taken control of the strategic town of Sangin.

The Afghan government has sent reinforcements to the district to help besieged forces but the defence minister called for international support and air cover.

A spokesman for the Taliban said on Twitter "Sangin district has completely collapsed to the Taliban" but the government has denied the claim.
