Hilary Benn says Jeremy Corbyn has shown strong leadership over Syria

Shadow foreign secretary Hilary Benn has defended Jeremy Corbyn's handling of the Syria debate, saying he has shown "really strong leadership" in recognising the different views within the Labour Party.

Mr Benn said it was "perfectly possible for people to reach different conclusions" based on "sincerely-held" beliefs.

Labour has granted its MPs a free vote when the Commons considers whether to extend UK air strikes against so-called Islamic State into Syria on Wednesday.
