Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron backs bombing 'death cult' IS

Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron sets out why his party will back air strikes in Syria against so-called Islamic State, saying he was "utterly, personally, moved and affected" by visits to refugee camps.

Mr Farron said he could not criticise the government for not taking enough refugees "if we do not also do everything in our power" to combat IS, which he described as an "evil death cult".
