Soldiers mentoring the Afghan National Police (ANP) claim the organisation has taken huge leaps towards becoming a credible crime fighting force.

They said the ANP, which was once better known for its high levels of corruption and drug abuse, has made significant progress in seizing bomb factories, opium production plants and weapons caches in Helmand Province and will be able to cope when British forces leave the area next year.

WO2 Steve McKinley, 36, Co Tyrone, who serves with the Royal Dragoon Guards, said they have a high success rate in combating crime over the past five months.
