RUSSIAN naval ships have staged a drill of the English coast.

Portsmouth-based HMS Tyne watched the four Russian vessels stage a drill in the Channel, according to reports.

It comes days after the French president, Francois Hollande, said he would not hand over a helicopter carrier being built for the Russian Navy.
