Fallon: Troops will get legal certainty

Defence Secretary Michael Fallon has been explaining how he plans to protect British troops from "vexatious" legal claims.

Under plans unveiled at Conservative Party conference, parts of the European Convention on Human Rights could be suspended during future conflicts.

Mr Fallon told The World At One's Martha Kearney the move would in the future "stop the thousands of claims" seen during the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts.
