Military personnel also give out food, drink and blankets in the images taken today as they welcomed people arriving at RAF Brize Norton. In one of the touching snaps, a little girl is handed a pink and white unicorn cuddly toy.

In another picture, a young boy holds up a blue dinosaur as a hero RAF worker kneels down next to him with a cardboard box filled with toys.

A third picture shows a little girl being passed a cuddly toy by the same smiling member of staff.

Another image is of a young girl with a blanket around her shoulders as she holds a green cuddly toy and a bottled drink.

And in a fifth photo a female RAF worker tends to a baby in a carrier.

One more posted two clapping hands emojis and wrote: “Great work.”

The RAF has so far airlifted more than 12,000 people out of Afghanistan as the deadline for foreign forces to depart looms.

US President Joe Biden rejected calls from allies including Boris Johnson to extend his deadline for withdrawing US troops past August 31 in order to prolong the humanitarian mission to airlift people to safety.

Armed forces minister James Heappey said on Thursday that the UK has helped 12,279 people escape Afghanistan since August 13 when Operation Pitting began.

It comes as a number of people are feared to have been killed in at least two explosions outside Kabul airport following warnings that a terror attack could be launched in the final phase of the evacuation effort.
