British involvement in a possible rescue mission appears less likely tonight after a No10 spokesman said that refugees in the Sinjar mountains had "adequate supplies".
Speaking after a meeting of the COBR emergency committee, the spokesman said the number of people in the area appeared to be in the "low thousands" - far fewer than previously estimated.
Earlier in the day, the Prime Minister confirmed that an RAF Tornado made surveillance flights over the area last night.
He also said that military assets - including Tornado jets and Chinook helicopters - would remain in place "to help out in the right way".
