The Afghanistan Animal Shelter Founder Wouldn't Leave the Country
The founder of an animal shelter in Afghanistan has said he has "mixed emotions" after arriving in the UK after leaving Kabul.
Paul "Pen" Farthing landed at Heathrow Airport on Sunday morning, having previously been caught up in Thursday's Kabul airport bomb blasts.
Mr Farthing's charity Nowzad confirmed he and his animals left the country on Saturday without his staff.
He said on Twitter he had "true deep feeling of sadness for Afghan today".
Mr Farthing, a former Royal Marine who is originally from Dovercourt in Essex, set up the Nowzad animal shelter in Kabul, rescuing dogs, cats and donkeys, after serving in Afghanistan in the mid-2000s.
Since the collapse of the Afghan government, Mr Farthing and his supporters have campaigned to have his staff, their families and 140 dogs and 60 cats evacuated from the country in a plan he named Operation Ark.
