Jeremy Corbyn has told Labour MPs that he cannot support RAF air strikes against Islamic State in Syria.

In a letter sent to all the party's MPs, Mr Corbyn said that David Cameron had failed to set out a "coherent strategy" for defeating IS in his Commons statement.

Earlier Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said that he believed the Government was building a consensus for military action.
