Tornado jets from RAF Marham leave for Iraq

Tornado jets off to Iraq from RAF Marham.

Tornado jets from RAF Marham have this afternoon left their West Norfolk base as they prepare to help with the aid effort in Northern Iraq.

Thousands of people were left stranded as they tried to escape Islamic militants.

The Marham airmen have flown to RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus and will carry out surveillance ahead of aid drops to refugees being carried out by cargo planes.
