Iraq crisis: UK mission could last for months - Fallon

The UK could be involved in military missions in Iraq for "weeks and months" to come, Defence Secretary Michael Fallon has warned.

He told military personnel on a visit to RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus that the UK's role in Iraq had expanded beyond the original humanitarian mission.

He said the RAF was flying missions to gather intelligence about movements of Islamic State (IS) militants.

It comes after the PM warned IS could target the UK unless action was taken.
