    It was all hands to the pump as a British C17 transporter plane loaded up with supplies for the French military operation in Mali.

    The UK was one of the first countries to offer logistical support. The US, Denmark and other European countries are also chipping in.

    The aim is to drive back Islamic militants from the north of Mali.
