A Foreign and Commonwealth Office spokesperson said:

"The UK plans to send a second flight to South Sudan to evacuate British nationals who wish to leave from Juba airport on Friday 20 December, following the evacuation of some British nationals on 19 December. If you are a British national and you wish to leave Juba you should contact the FCO as soon as possible on +44 207 008 1500 or by email atcrisis@fco.gsi.gov.uk.

"If you would like to be on the flight on 20 December, we advise you to be at Juba Airport by 10:00 hours. It may not be possible to carry any baggage. If you bring baggage to the airport, you may have to leave it there.

"We strongly advise all British Nationals in South Sudan to leave the country if they can do so safely. You may have difficulty leaving in the event of a further deterioration in security.

"British nationals choosing to remain in South Sudan should remain alert to the local security situation, monitor the media, and stay in a safe location. A curfew is in place in Juba and some other towns between 6pm and 6am.

"Any British nationals wishing to leave should be reassured that all personal information will be protected in line with the Data Protection Act 1998."
