The police are to be given new powers to seize the passports of terrorist suspects and stop British jihadists from returning to the UK, David Cameron has said.

It was "abhorrent" British citizens had "declared their allegiance" to groups like Islamic State, he told MPs.

He said the UK was looking at "specific and discretionary" powers to bar suspects from returning the UK.
