Poll: 41% of Brits say UK should not be involved in Mali

An ITV News Index Poll carried out by ComRes reveals that two in five Britons (41%) believe Britain should play no part at all in the French-led operation in Mali.

One in four disagree (25%) and one in three (33%) are not sure.

The survey's findings come after David Cameron said Britain is to consider giving France more transport and surveillance assets.

ComRes interviewed 2,013 British adults online from 18th to 20th January 2013.
