Michael Morpurgo: 'History tells me what I need to know about Europe'

Author Michael Morpurgo - best-known for his children's books such as War Horse - believes the UK should stay in the European Union.

"I do know my history, and I know we've been at peace for all these years - and that has something to do with Europe," he says.

My Decision is a series of films by BBC Newsnight in which a number of well-known figures explain how they plan to vote, and the thinking behind their decision.
