Jason Florio is currently back at sea, with the MOAS SAR team (search and rescue), onboard the Phoenix , patrolling the waters just off the coast of Libya.

The stormy weather meant that the first couple of days down in the SAR area were quiet but today, as the sea calmed, all that changed and the team has been busy with rescues all morning.
