An Israeli embassy officer was recorded commenting on Sir Alan Duncan and Boris Johnson.

Israel's ambassador to the UK has apologised after a senior member of his staff was secretly filmed saying he wanted to "take down" Foreign Office Minister Sir Alan Duncan.

Israeli Embassy senior political officer Shai Masot made the comment in footage filmed in a London restaurant in October 2016 as part of an investigation by Al Jazeera.

The conversation involved Mr Masot and Maria Strizzolo, an aide to education minister Robert Halfon, as well as an undercover reporter.
