British commanders must "bear a degree of responsibility" for the failure to prevent a Taliban raid in Afghanistan in 2012 that left two US marines dead, a group of MPs has said.

The Commons Defence Committee said the UK's main base Camp Bastion had been left vulnerable by a "complacent" approach to perimeter security.

They also criticised the "apparent tolerance of poppy cultivation immediately outside the fence".
