The Lib Dem MP, David Ward has stood by comments he made about Gaza on social media.

Speaking to Rachel Burden on BBC Radio 5 live's Breakfast programme, he said "people jump straight on the anti-Semitism bandwagon".

Ward sparked online controversy by tweeting "The big question is - if I lived in #Gaza would I fire a rocket? - probably yes."

Last year he was suspended from the Lib Dem party for comments he made about Israel.
