Jeremy Corbyn is on a collision course with his shadow cabinet over his opposition to UK air strikes in Syria.

Half of them support military action - and some have warned of resignations if he forces them to back his position.

The row erupted after the Labour leader wrote to his MPs saying he was not convinced by David Cameron's case for bombing IS targets in Syria.
