Warship, troops and war plane could be sent to Falklands to 'show Britain's force' to Argentina

Britain is prepared to send additional military backup to the South Atlantic as a 'show of force' to Argentina over the Falkland Islands.

It is understood an extra warship, another RAF Tycoon combat aircraft and further troops could be dispatched to the region ahead of the March referendum over whether the islands remain part of the UK.

According to the Sunday Telegraph, the options being proposed by planners at the Permanent Joint Headquarters in Northwood, London, include conducting naval exercises in the region.
