PM condemns killing of East Yorkshire aid worker

David Haines was taken by Islamic State militants in March 2013.

The Prime Minister has condemned a video purportedly showing the beheading of British aid worker David Haines as "pure evil".

The 44-year-old who was born in East Yorkshire was thought to be being held by Islamic militants in Syria after being taken hostage in March last year.

The Foreign Office says it believes the video is genuine.
