Hundreds of British tourists are being evacuated from Kenya after the Foreign Office warned there was a "high threat" of an attack by extremists.

Tour operators Thomson and First Choice cancelled all flights to Mombasa until October and said holidaymakers would be flown back as a precautionary measure.
