MPs urged to step up action against IS

MPs are being urged to consider supporting British air strikes against Islamic State targets in Syria.

The Defence Secretary Michael Fallon is expected to tell the Commons that it's 'illogical' to attack IS extremists in Iraq, but not over the border in Syria.

Colonel Bob Stewart MP, former British Commander in Bosnia, joins us to discuss the air strikes debate.
