Britain is already a focus for attack from Daesh, Suffolk MP Dan Poulter has told MPs. Speaking in the House of Commons in favour of extending air strikes into Syria ahead of tonight's vote, the former minister said Isis was already a 'clear and present danger' to the UK and was 'already a fundamental threat to our security'.

He said there was 'patchwork of ground troops' and a concurrent process in Vienna 'build a broader diplomatic alliance'.

'This is a work in process. The fact we do not have a perfect solution on the ground by Syrian forces isn't in my view a barrier to supporting air strikes, 'This is an evolving process,' he added.
