RAF tornados return to base after strikes on IS in Iraq

Two RAF jets have carried out their first strikes on Islamic State targets in Iraq, attacking a "heavy weapon position" and an armed pick-up truck.

The Ministry of Defence said the attacks were in support of Kurdish units in the north-west of the country.

BBC reporter Jonathan Beale was at RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus as the jets - GR4 Tornados - returned to base.
