Boris Johnson to visit Caribbean islands battered by Hurricane Irma

Boris Johnson is travelling to the Caribbean to visit British overseas territories battered by Irma, amid criticism that the Government's response to the devastating hurricane was slow.

The Foreign Secretary will spend "the coming days" in the region to see the UK's relief effort first-hand, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office said.

He is expected to visit the British Virgin Islands and Anguilla, two of the worst-hit territories.

French President Emmanuel Macron is also visiting the region, and his trip to St Martin is expected to coincide with the arrival of a military ship carrying supplies. He has already arrived on the island of Guadeloupe.
