According to the Defense Secretary, about 150 Brits will be left behind in Afghanistan after the airport gates were sealed this morning.
The closure of the gate means that desperate Afghans and any Brits who fall off the radar will not be on RAF flight out of Afghanistan.
Wallace said that it is unfortunate that not all people will be evacuated from Afghanistan. He added that the estimated number of Brits who will be left behind is 150 and the number may change.
Mr. Wallace said that from tomorrow, the airlift would move to phase two and concentrate mainly on the 1,000 soldiers and the remaining officials.
Western forces are expected to get out of Afghanistan before the deadline issued by the Taliban group.
